Join the Cardiff u3a

How This Works

  • You pay an annual membership fee of £15.
    (The membership year runs from 1st March. If you join between 1st September and 1st March, you pay a reduced fee of £10.)
  • Then join in as many, or as few, of the 45 or so group activities on offer as you want.
  • The only additional costs are for your own refreshments and the expenses of things you choose to get involved in, such as room hire or transport.
  • There are also occasional special events, email communications and a monthly meeting with a speaker which is open to all members.

Prospective members are invited to come along to one monthly meeting for free, and two u3a group meetings as ‘tasters’ at which they will be asked to contribute towards any room hire fees.

Although you will pay via the PayPal website, you do not have to have a PayPal account, nor do you have to set one up.

Membership enquiries

New Members are not left stranded.

A New Members’ Coffee morning is held fairly regularly to meet some of the Group convenors and committee members to introduce you to the Cardiff U3A and to see what your interests and needs are too. When you have joined, look out for your invitation!


If you pay tax…

Donations made through Gift Aid mean charities are able to claim an additional 25p for every £1 you donate, without costing you any extra.

By completing a Gift Aid declaration you are giving us the right to reclaim the tax from HMRC on your donation.
