Description

Keeping it Legal

The Third Age Trust is running a new series of training events in 2018 for U3A committee members. The workshops will be held in locations which we calculate to be accessible to the largest number of U3As.

These workshop days are being offered in response to requests and enquiries from U3A committee members regarding the legal requirements and responsibilities of running a U3A.

As charities (registered or otherwise), U3A committees are required to ensure that they are aware of and compliant with the legislation that impacts on their work. U3A committee members are the foundation of the U3A movement. These workshops, which will be led by industry experts, have been designed to support you to fulfil your requirements as both committee members and charity trustees.

Each workshop day will comprise of four sessions covering a number of important topics:

  • General Data Protection Regulation
  • Safeguarding
  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
  • Insurance

All delegates will have the opportunity to attend all sessions.

The format will be a mix of plenary and break-out sessions, with plenty of time for networking and discussion. Continental breakfast on arrival, lunch and refreshments are included. Initially these are open to one delegate per U3A. We will let U3As know if there are spare spaces available nearer the date.
