  • See information about Groups
  • See a version of the Calendar which is more detailed than the Public view
  • Update your personal details held in our records
  • When appropriate, renew your membership online

Beacon administration system

We use a cloud-based membership management system called Beacon to store information about our members and interest groups.

Beacon was created by U3A volunteers specifically for the purpose and it is supported by the Third Age Trust.

Access to members’ information is strictly controlled within the Cardiff U3A.
