To volunteer with Glasgow’s Golden Generation you do not have to have any formal qualifications, nor do you need to have any previous volunteering experience. What you do need is an enthusiasm for the role and a willingness to make a difference to someone’s life. We offer many different opportunities, suited to any interests you may have!
IN THE DAY CENTRES
GGG runs three day care centres, all providing a friendly meeting place for the elderly, offering a cooked lunch and lots of activities. There are many different opportunities for volunteering here – be it as administration support, driver, or IT specialist.
IN OUR CHARITY SHOPS

Our unique befriending service matches socially isolated older adults with volunteers, who visit them regularly in their homes. The befrienders aim to keep their clients more active and help them get out of the house and more involved in their communities.
GGG also supports over one hundred clubs throughout Glasgow, all of which need volunteers to help keep them going.
