Saltash University of the 3rd Age (U3A) is an Unincorporated Association comprising people who regularly gather to share their experiences, knowledge, philosophies, values and ideas.
Saltash U3A was founded in September 2006 as a result of the enthusiasm of local people and has steadily grown ever since. Our membership now exceeds 300 and currently runs over 30 activity groups – full details on our Groups page.
As well as Saltash, we currently have members in Botus Fleming, Pillaton, St Germans, Landrake, Tideford, Landulph and other local towns and villages.
Our members learn from each other. Saltash U3A provides a learning forum for the growth of the human spirit, the development of friendships and the exploration of ideas to enrich the quality of life in the Third Age and can be a great help in combating loneliness.
Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn, and there is no distinction between them.
Membership of a U3A is open to all in their third age, which is defined not by a particular age but by a period in life in which full time employment has ceased.
Current Year Programme
Third Age Trust
The Third Age Trust is the national representative body for U3As in the UK. It is both a limited company and a registered charity. It underpins the work of local U3As by providing educational and administrative support to their management committees and to individual members and assists in the development of new U3As across the UK. The Third Age Trust is funded mainly by annual subscriptions paid by member U3As with the occasional grant for specific projects.
Every U3A is an independently managed charitable association with its own constitution. Membership of The Third Age Trust is a requirement in order to use the U3A name and logo, both of which are protected but once registered, providing the aims and guiding principles of the organisation are adhered to, local U3As are self-governing.
