Tring U3A recognises that some people are potentially at risk of abuse and neglect. This can take place in a person’s own home, in the home of a carer, family member or friend, and within any form of institution e.g. hospitals, residential care or nursing home.
Tring U3A also recognises that abuse and neglect can be perpetrated by its members, other users of services, relatives, friends and neighbours. Where abuse or neglect is suspected Tring U3A will aim to respond to the situation in a way which is caring, effective and enabling.
Tring u3a is committed to ensuring that it is as inclusive and accessible as possible for those in their third age who meet the criteria for membership. This policy document should be read alongside Tring u3a’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy.
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy
Tring u3a recognise that some people are particularly likely to experience discrimination and harassment and is committed to making sure that it is as inclusive and welcoming as possible and to ensure that members do not experience discrimination on the basis of their ‘protected characteristics’.
Tring U3A committee feel that the U3A should have a Sustainability Policy. It is difficult to know how to make a difference, but to reduce the use of the car would be a contribution. Warming of Earth’s atmosphere is a natural process, vital to support life. We know from studies of the Solar System that excess carbon produces runaway heating.
Resolution of our carbon challenge lies with each of us, individually. Our most direct contribution is limiting use of our cars. If possible, walking or cycling to u3a meetings would make a small, important contribution to limiting growth in carbon emissions - most importantly for the benefit of future generations. The key issue is a change in mind-set about the use of our cars – is each journey essential?
