Littleborough u3a


u3a represents a diverse and enthusiastic group of members who are wonderful examples of what it means to age well. Our members all approach later life in different ways and we want to see this reflected in the way we talk about and think about ageing. Ageism is the most common form of discrimination in the UK and nearly two fifths of our members have experienced ageism towards their age group.

“Our first annual u3a day celebrated the opportunities and experiences which members have found in later life. We hope the day will also challenge preconceptions about age. The day fell during Volunteering Week and was an opportunity to highlight the amazing voluntary work u3a members do within our organisation - sharing skills and talents.

Affiliated to the Third Age Trust, Littleborough u3a promotes collaborative learning through a range of interest groups and monthly meetings.

Social events, theatre visits and cultural visits are also arranged by members, for members.

We aim for the advancement of education and, in particular, the education of older people and those who are retired from full-time work, by all means including associated activities conducive to learning and personal development.
