NEXT STEPS

 
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 an older adult’s life.

We offer many different opportunities such as telephone befriending, centre support volunteers, volunteer drivers and much more.
