Glasgow's Golden Generation
Forty per cent of older adults in Glasgow have no knowledge or access to IT. Our project would help them learn new skills that would enable them to interact with family, friends and the community.

About this cause
Our charity was registered as Glasgow Old People's Welfare Association in 1948, the same year as the National Health Service was founded. In 2018, the charity changed its name to Glasgow's Golden Generation. The charity provides welfare support, befriending, weekly clubs, day care centres and support for older adults with dementia.
How this cause brings people in the community together
During the pandemic, over 100 adults have made use of our befriending service as they have been locked down in their homes. We have distributed 1,200 food parcels monthly, and identified our community's needs via a survey. Going forward, older adults will be offered support that includes befriending clubs, day centres and dementia help.
