Interest groups are at the core of Islington U3A and reflect the knowledge, skills and expertise of members. iU3A already has over 50 groups to offer. The topics range from crafts to philosophy, from local walks to global history. Many groups are based on equal participation, while others (for example the language groups) have an expert leader. A majority of groups meet in members’ homes, providing a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. All groups are informal — inspired and enthused by their members.
