Glasgow's Golden Generation

Glasgow's Golden Generation

Care in the autumn years...

Established as Glasgow Old People’s Welfare Association (GOPWA), Glasgow’s Golden Generation (GGG) is now Glasgow’s leading charity for the elderly. 

Our charity aims to improve the quality of life of older adults in Glasgow through a variety of support services ranging from our 3 day care centres, clubs, community support, volunteering, befriending and welfare services.

Want to get involved? We’re always looking for volunteers!

Every week day, our three day centres located throughout Glasgow provide a friendly meeting place for the elderly, offering a cooked lunch and a plethora of activities.

“Our Centres have 20,000 visits annually”

Our experienced Welfare Officers offer professional advice and guidance through the complexity of the benefits system — you are probably entitled to more than you think you are!

“Our welfare team claimed £1.7million for the elderly in 2018”

GGG supports over 100 clubs throughout Glasgow, which provides older adults with the opportunity to regularly meet up with peers.

The service also encompasses Befriending volunteers, who visit older adults in their homes.

“Our volunteers put in thousands of hours visiting the elderly every year”
