U3A stands for the University of the Third Age, which is a self-help organisation for people no longer in full time employment providing educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment.  It consists of local U3As all over the UK, which are charities in their own right and are run entirely by volunteers.  Bracknell Forest U3A is a member of the Third Age Trust.  Bracknell Forest U3A was formed in January 2001 at a public meeting of approximately 80 people. Current membership is over 320 members.  U3A membership is not related to a specific age but to a period in one’s life (the third age) after the second age of full-time employment and parental responsibility.  Anybody in their third age can join U3A and this includes people who are working part time.  There is no lower age for membership www.bracknellU3A.org.uk
