Starting a new U3A in Scotland
Starting a new U3A
U3A is growing fast, and new groups are starting up all the time. If you are unlucky enough not to be able to find a local U3A you might consider starting one yourself. Both U3A in Scotland and the National Office can help you.
Help from U3A in Scotland
We understand the issues involving in creating a U3A, whether a brand new group or an offshoot from a larger group, especially amongst Scotland's farflung and rural communities. Contact us first for advice, through Secretary Ed Link via email at email@example.com.
Help from the National Office
The National Office of U3A's parent group (the Third Age Trust) can help with practical matters and startup funding. The following are available:-
1. A series of booklets on topics such as dealing with the media, starting a new U3A, Objects and Principles, Committee Procedure etc
2. A full range of publicity materials including posters, leaflets, bookmarks.
3. Putting you in touch with relevant people locally who will be able to assist you.
4. A model constitution.
5. Free temporary membership of the Trust for 3 months which provides you with liability insurance cover.
