Members needing Help
U3As are self-help co-operative organisations run entirely by the members for the members and therefore it is important that individuals are able to take full responsibility for their own participation in U3A activities/events.
However, a situation may arise where a member wishes to attend an interest group or activity but is worried that he/she would not be able to participate fully without help. The Third Age Trust has extended its liability insurance policy to cover the attendance of a companion/carer. It is hoped that by doing this, members in this situation will continue to be able to enjoy the full benefits of U3A membership.
If you find yourselves in this position at any time, please don’t stop coming; speak to a member of the committee in confidence and appropriate arrangements can be agreed.
