How to Join HWu3a

When our new on-line payment system is operational we will be able to accept on-line applications and payments. Until then you can download and complete a paper-based form or join at one of our monthly meetings.

Joining HWu3a could not be easier. You can either join on line or by downloading and completing an application form. As we are a new u3a, the membership fee for 2022 is only £5.00 (typical yearly fee is £15 to £20). We will review the membership subscription each year and will notify you, in advance, of any increase at the time of membership renewal.

In applying for membership you agree to comply at all times with the HWu3a Member Code of Conduct and the Principles of the u3a Movement. Please also read the following before completing the form.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK tax payer and wish to gift aid your subscription, this will boost your donation by 25% at no cost to you. Gift aid is then reclaimed by HWu3a from the tax you pay for the current tax year. You may cancel your gift aid at any time by notifying the Membership Secretary. You must also notify our Membership Secretary if you no longer pay sufficient tax or change your address.

To gift aid your subscription, simply tick the box in the on line form or paper-based form. In ticking the box, you confirm that you are a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less income tax and/or capital gains tax than the amount of gift aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year, you are responsible for paying any difference.

Privacy statement

HWu3a will only use the personal information that you provide in your membership application to manage and administer your membership, to communicate with you and to enable you to receive the Third Age Matters magazine, which is produced by the Third Age Trust and mailed to you directly as part of your membership. If you do not want to receive this magazine, please notify our Membership Secretary. The legal basis for holding your personal information is that we have a legitimate interest in doing so as without it, we could not administer your membership or carry our HWu3a’s charitable purposes. Please see our Data Protection Policy.
