Guidance notes for members / group leaders who organise visits with or without overnight stays

Trips whether for a day or involving overnight stays are a valued and important part of U3A group activities.

For some time there has been concern expressed regarding the ability to make emergency contact with members who are away from home on U3A outings. These outings may or may not involve overnight stays. We have had to take into account the latest data protection requirements and your committee has now come up with a set of guidelines that we strongly recommend our members and group leaders to follow when organising trips.

Please take time to look at these well in advance of organising your trip.
