Welcome to Purbeck U3A
U3A is an organisation which seeks to promote active learning, research, community services and social activities to those no longer in full time employment.
From this concept it has grown since 1972 to an International Organisation, now with over 1,000 independent groups within the UK alone.
Purbeck U3A is based in the Purbeck area of South Dorset and its groups meet regularly in Swanage, Wareham and surrounding villages.
Purbeck U3A is affiliated to the International Organisation and actively supports a wide programme of activities and social events locally.
The programme is fully motivated and supported from within using the skills, resources, and backgrounds of individual members. The annual subscription is just £16, with membership open to all who share the aims of U3A as set out in our constitution.
