Delegates from the People’s Republic of China were welcomed to Castlemilk senior centre last week.
The delegation examined how social enterprises work towards promoting education, citizenship and community development.
Visitors were given a tour of building, while centre manager Melanie O’Donnell explained how the centre works towards preventing loneliness and social isolation and how this promotes better physical and mental health.
James Dornan MSP answered questions on the government’s role in supporting social enterprises.
Following lunch and a more formal question-andanswer session, the delegates presented the centre with a model of the Flying Horse of Gansu.
The senior centre aims to promote the health and wellbeing of the older residents of Castlemilk and surrounding areas by providing classes, day trips, a cafe, weekend breaks, and much more.
