Members and guests celebrated the launch of a new U3A Impact report at a Parliamentary Reception hosted by Robert Courts MP.

The research: Living Life, Extending Horizons, Challenging Conventions demonstrated the exceptional impact of the U3A movement on wellbeing in later life. It details a sustainable and positive approach to ageing built on group learning, skill sharing and volunteering.

Members reported major benefits to being part of U3A in terms of confidence, combatting loneliness, learning new skills, feeling valued and enjoying life.

Guests in attendance included leaders in policy and influencing, elected representatives, public health and charities.

The response to the report has been very positive and U3A would encourage everyone to share it as widely as possible throughout the community.
