National Workshop Series
The Third Age Trust will be piloting a new series of training events in 2018 for U3A committee members. The workshops will be held in two locations which we calculate to be accessible to the largest number of U3As: the northern pilot in Leeds, and the southern in Surrey. If the pilots are successful, the programme will be taken to further venues.
These workshop days are being offered in response to requests and enquiries from U3A committee members regarding the legal requirements and responsibilities of running a U3A.
As charities (registered or otherwise), U3A committees are required to ensure that they are aware of and compliant with the legislation that impacts on their work. U3A committee members are the foundation of the U3A movement. These pilot days, which will be led by industry experts, have been designed to support you to fulfil your requirements as both committee members and charity trustees.
Each workshop day will cover a number of important topics:
- General Data Protection Regulation
- Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
The format will be a mix of plenary and break-out sessions, with plenty of time for networking and discussion. Lunch will be included, and to further facilitate attendance, accommodation and dinner is available the night before if required.

De Vere Horsley, Surrey: 5 April
Designed and built in 1820 by Sir Charles Barry, the architect of the Houses of Parliament, the estate was later the seat of the Lovelace family who enhanced it with the bold architectural features that can still be seen throughout.
A free shuttle bus will operate from East Horsley Station, and parking is available on site.
