Join the Cardiff u3a

How This Works

  • You pay an annual membership fee of £12.
    (The membership year runs from 1st March until end of February.)
  • 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.

Joining Online

You can join online using a credit or debit card paying as a Guest or a PayPal account:

Need Help? Here’s a useful document.

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. If you are experiencing difficulty with using the ‘Join online’ option or in renewing your membership please tell us by emailing the links or using the telephone number given below.

By joining or renewing online you are signing up to the Cardiff u3a Terms and Conditions of Membership.

Membership enquiries
For all enquiries

Contact the Membership Secretary

Otherwise phone 07544 289434 which is an unattended number so you should leave a message or text.

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.
