Interest Groups

It is often said that interest groups are the life blood of the u3a, and each group will develop its own structure. However, it is important that Group Convenors/Leaders, groups and members follow the u3a ethos of shared, participative and self-help learning – the teachers learn, and the learners teach. The result will not only be an increase in knowledge, but a supportive and friendly atmosphere which enables everyone to participate.

If you are thinking of starting a new group the links below will help guide you through the process and ensure that you stay compliant with our current policies all of which can be found under the ‘Legal Stuff’ tab on our website.
