COUNT US IN: An Equality Policy for Disabled Members of Worthing U3A:

We have recently approved a Policy document on Equality (see Link to side of page). Our policy aims to promote the social, moral and educational benefits of increasing inclusion for ALL members of Worthing U3A. In so doing, it reflects the vision of The Third Age Trust which is to make life-long learning, through the experience of the U3A, a reality for all persons in their third age.

For more detailed information on venue access to group activities, U3A members are advised to consult group pages on this website, where specific information on venues can often be found. If no venue detail is provided, please make direct contact with the convenor for advice.
