Glasgow's Golden Generation

Care in the autumn years...

Established in 1948 as Glasgow Old People’s Welfare Association (GOPWA), Glasgow’s Golden Generation 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.

Our experienced Welfare Officers offer professional advice and guidance through the complexity of the benefits system. 

Our service is free of charge and available to older people living in Glasgow.
