There is a network of over 70 u3a national subject advisers, whose role is to provide subject advice on both the setting up of a group in their particular speciality and the sustainability and development of existing groups. Advisers may provide groups with new ideas, resources or a different approach and some can provide connections and networking opportunities with other groups of similar interests.
Some subject advisers keep in touch with group convenors through newsletters or blogs which is a useful way of sharing suggestions or good practice, and some also organise study days.
They cover a wide range of subjects from American Archaeology to Yoga, with a real mix of academic, practical and leisure activities in between.
A list of subject advisers and their contact details can be found in each issue of Third Age Matters, and each subject has a page below where you can find links to additional information and resources.
