U3A is supporting Arriva in its new campaign – Connecting Communities - which aims to tackle loneliness and social isolation by highlighting places that people can go in their local area.

The campaign has now launched and features website hubs which illustrate community centres, activities and groups in communities across the UK, as well as the relevant bus route.

Arriva is one of the largest providers of passenger transport in Europe and operates over 5,000 buses across the UK, playing a vital role in many communities.

Sam Mauger, Chief Executive of the Third Age Trust which supports the more than 1,000 U3As around the country said, “Arriva aims to highlight every U3A along its routes. We are looking to further develop this partnership and we thank U3A committees in advance for their support of this exciting partnership which will reach out into the heart of communities”.
