Stafford U3A

What does it do?

Stafford U3A was launched in March 2006 after an inaugural meeting on 1st February. We now have over thirty activity groups all of which are led by U3A members sharing their knowledge, experience and skills with others. All meet during the day at a variety of venues in Stafford and surrounding villages, sometimes in members' homes. More new groups are being created. There are also monthly meetings, open to all members, which feature visiting guest speakers covering a wide range of topics. There is no limit to the number of groups members can join

Who it is for?

U3As are self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operatives for older people no longer in full time work, providing opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun.

Where it is available?
