Glasgow’s Golden Generation

Charity registered in Scotland SC008200

Glasgow’s Golden Generation (GGG) has been supporting older adults across Glasgow since 1948. GGG’s vision is that no senior citizen will be forgotten or neglected when they reach old age, and that they will receive the support they need to live life as fully and independently as possible. The charity aims to decrease loneliness and isolation traditionally through the provision of four key services: 3 Day Care Centres offering transport, meals and activities, a face to face and telephone Befriending Service, a Welfare Service to help navigate the benefits system and 25 weekly Clubs with over 700 members. Most Service Users are over 80 years of age and would be described as ‘high risk’ and ‘vulnerable’, in that they would experience a rapid deterioration in physical and mental health without support. Approximately 80% of GGG Service Users are affected by Dementia and is a critical element of GGG’s work.
