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!
GGG runs three day care centres, all providing a friendly meeting place for older adults, offering a nutritional lunch and lots of activities. There are many volunteering opportunities in the day centres including as a volunteer cook, support assistant, driver or admin assistant.
Our charity shop is located in Shawlands, and rely on enthusiastic volunteers to help run smoothly. You can get creative as window dresser, provide a friendly retail experience for customers as a volunteer shop assistant, or exercise your muscles when collecting and delivering furniture!
Our befriending service matches socially isolated older adults with volunteers, who visit them regularly in their homes or get in touch via phone and video call. The befrienders aim to keep their clients active and help them get out of the house and more involved in their communities. GGG also supports volunteer led weekly clubs throughout Glasgow, all of which need volunteers to help keep them going.
