We are local retired people who have formed a branch of the u3a

In the u3a everyone's interests, skills and experiences are valuable and we all learn from each other. Costs are kept low by members themselves organising and leading group activities.

We aim to provide equal rights of access for all to our u3a activities. In 2014 we held a Disabilites Sub-Commitee which was set up to further this aim. Our resulting Accessibility Guidelines are given below.

New Mills and District u3a Accessibility Guidelines

New Mills and District u3a aims to promote equal access for all members and prospective members to group and general meetings.  To this end the Disability Sub-Committee has devised a set of guidelines to help group leaders to facilitate the inclusion of all members as set out in the following aims:

  • To identify and support members and prospective members who have disclosed a difficulty relating to visual and hearing loss, mobility and general health issues.
  • To help provide reasonable support for those members to enable them to access group and general meetings.
  • To assist group leaders by providing information on support structures available through charitable institutions and organisations, the national u3a and/or local government services.
  • To create the role of Accessibility Officer whose remit will be to provide information and support to members and group leaders as above   (Hazel Perry, access@newmillsu3a.org.uk).
  • To provide, where reasonably practical, adjusted materials to enable members with some visual loss to access documents
  • To advise and support speakers at general meetings on reasonable adjustments which support our aims.
