Charity No: 1092984
The U3A (or University of the Third Age) is a popular and ever expanding self-help organisation for people no longer in full-time employment – indeed this is the only criterion for membership! Each local U3A group is a charity in its own right and is run entirely by volunteers providing educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly and informal environment.
There are no entry requirements and no exams (unless members of a group wish to go the extra mile) so extending your knowledge in a particular subject or taking up a new interest can be really enjoyable. There are no demarcation lines – someone who is a “tutor” in one subject group is very likely to be a “student” in another.
And there’s an added bonus: the likelihood of new friendships, which in itself can be a very good reason for becoming a member!
Membership is available to those who are not in full time employment, offering the opportunity to keep body and mind active in a light hearted way without pressure or examinations.
A single phone call to the membership secretary or any one of the committee members listed on the ‘contact us’ page will bring a friendly and sympathetic response.
Whatever your interests you will enjoy a warm and friendly welcome at Blandford U3A.
