The Retired and Senior Volunteering Programme in Glasgow provides volunteering opportunities primarily for the 50+ age group. Knitting groups are available to participate in this region in which members meet for coffee and chats. They bring in knitted items that are distributed to benefit the local community and are provided with wool to bring home.
RSVP is self-funding, relying on applications to local grant funding groups such as the Rotary.
