Glasgow City Mission is the world’s first City Mission. Since 1826, we have been showing Christian care to vulnerable adults and children by fighting against poverty and disadvantage in Glasgow. This has not stopped with the COVID-19 crisis, we have just adapted. Instead of welcoming our guests to our projects we are in weekly phone contact with more than 220 guests. Communication with people who feel particularly isolated is essential. We are also making food deliveries three times a week. As lockdown starts to ease we are now meeting guests for one-to-one walks to provide support and help guests deal with any issues they may be facing. Please check out our latest news or visit our Facebook page to see how we are engaging with our guests. If you are able please also consider clicking the DONATE button above to help us with our ongoing work.
