Welcome to Stafford U3A

U3A (University of the Third Age) is a learning self-help group of older people which enables members to share many educational, creative and leisure activities. It was brought to the UK in 1982 and now there are over 1000 autonomous groups, supported by a national body The Third Age Trust. There is no lower age limit for membership - anyone who has passed the first age of childhood and the second age of full time employment and parental responsibility is welcome, even if working part time. No qualifications are needed to join and none are given.

Stafford U3A was launched in March 2006 after an inaugural meeting on 1st February. We now have over seventy activity groups all of which are led by U3A members sharing their knowledge, experience and skills with others. Most 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

The annual membership fee for Stafford U3A is £10.00 per person (2020 - 2021) of which £3.50 is sent to the Third Age Trust. There is also a fee of £1.00 for each group session attended.

Covid-19 Arrangements: Many groups are continuing to stay in touch using Zoom, WhatsApp, email, Royal Mail and telephone. See individual Group pages for more detail.
