Welcome to Crouch End & District u3a



Thank you for visiting Crouch End & District u3a’s website to discover more about who we are and what we do. We are a non-religious and non-political locally run registered charity based on the principles of learning and co-operation and part of the u3a international movement

We are not a service provider, rather a mutual aid organisation to which all members are encouraged to contribute. Its success depends on the willingness of members to help out in whatever way they feel able
