Are you looking for Glasgow charity jobs that allow you to give back to your community? Civil Society Jobs has pinpointed five non-profit organisations that work to improve social problems within the city. Whether you are looking for full-time work or want to volunteer in your free time, take a look at the organisations to discover the best ways to help out in Glasgow.
1) Yorkhill Children's Foundation - this charity raises funds for Yorkhill Hospital and other NHS Glasgow & Clyde services. To help sick children and babies, the foundation works hard to provide hospitals with enhanced medical equipment. The charity has also improved family facilities and provided funding for paediatric research and training.
2) Maggie's centres - this charity offers invaluable support to those suffering from problems associated with cancer. The organisation has been called a "community jewel" by Michelle Obama, who commended the centres for their psychological support and stress reduction training. As Scotland has a number of Maggie's centres, those looking for charity jobs in Edinburgh, Fife and Dundee can also apply to work for the charity.
3) P.D.S.A - when looking for Glasgow charity jobs, try the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals which has a number of branches across the city. This organisation has no government backing and relies solely on charity fundraising and donations. The P.D.S.A not only offers free veterinary services, but also works to promote responsible pet ownership in Glasgow.
4) Glasgow Old People's Welfare Association - the organisation provides the elderly with much-needed support and assistance. Established just after the Second World War, the charity helps the older generation to cope with such problems as poverty, ill health and loneliness.
5) The Poverty Alliance - this network first came together in the mid 1980s to combat social exclusion and poverty in the city. The charity group still works to tackle social and economic problems throughout Glasgow, fighting for policy changes in Scotland, the UK and Europe.
