The Wing Hong Chinese Elderly Group(also known as The Wing Hong Centre) was founded in 1989, the aim of our organisation is to tackle the problem of social exclusion faced by elderly Chinese and enhance the quality of life for the Chinese elderly who lives in Glasgow area. Wing Hong exists to provide equal opportunities for elderly Chinese by supporting them in the areas of health, welfare, housing and social services. The objectives of the Group are to provide culturally sensitive and holistic services and support to the service users and to combat social exclusion and raise awareness of the needs of elderly Chinese.
The Wing Hong Centre provides a safe and friendly venue for all kinds of leisure activities, provides lunch club for the service users, the lunch club serves Chinese meals which helps to meet the dietary and nutritional requirements of its users.
