Welcome to the Swansea U3A Website.

 




Important Notice.

You will be aware of the current situation in regard to the Covid-19 virus in the UK.  As you know, we members are in the ‘at risk’ category of suffering significant issues in the event of contracting the virus.  In view of this your committee's advice is to follow the Government and NHS guidance.


Some groups are able to meet outdoors providing they are following current guidelines.  To see the report on the latest Third Age Trust thoughts about restarting please click the link below.

Following a sharp increase in coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in the CITY & COUNTY OF SWANSEA COUNCIL area, new restrictions have been introduced to reduce the spread of the virus and protect public health for people living in the area.
The restrictions come into force at 6pm on 27 September 2020 and will be kept under review.
The main restrictions are:

  • people will not be allowed to enter or leave the City and County of Swansea Council area without a reasonable excuse.
  • people will no longer be able to form, or be in, an extended household (sometimes called a “bubble”).
  • this means meeting indoors with anyone who is not part of your household (people you live with) is not allowed at the moment, unless you have a good reason, such as providing care to a vulnerable person.
  • all licensed premises have to stop serving alcohol at 10pm.
  • people must work from home wherever possible.


We have received the documentation from the Third Age Trust regarding the restarting of groups.  If you are considering restarting your group you should be aware of the following two documents:-

    If your group is considering starting up again, please let us know so we can provide help and support. At this time we are advising that indoor groups do not meet until further notice.


    Members wishing to attend a group MUST complete a 'Personal Members' Checklist' BEFORE attending a meeting - click link below.

    Many people are being very careful and that is perfectly understandable but at least there is some cautious optimism ahead.


    Some Groups are using Zoom or other platforms to hold virtual meetings.  Please see the U3A Remote Activity Risk Assessment Checklist.  If you would like help setting up a Zoom meeting please contact us.

     
    Also if you need help, in any way, please let us know so we can provide you with help and support.

    Please will you check that your groups and friends are aware of this notice, especially those who don't use computers.
