Ageing Well Programme - Individuals
Glasgow Museums work with the charity ReEngage to provide gatherings at our venues.
These cater for people over the age of 70, who may live alone or find it harder to get out on their own and are interested in visiting museums. Guests are collected from their homes by volunteers and explore a different museum each month.
If you would like to attend our ReEngage programme, call 0800 716 543. Alternatively visit their website or email email@example.com
