Wing Hong Chinese Elderly Centre
Wing Hong Elderly Group (also known as Wing Hong Centre) is a charity organisation established with the aim to enhance the quality of life for the Chinese elderly. The Group was formed in 1989 with the help of the Social Work Development and the Ethnic Minorities Project. In 1992, the Group employed a development worker for two years under the Scottish Office Ethnic Minority Grant Scheme. From 1993, Urban Aid funding was granted to the Group and in 1997 the project received grants from Glasgow City Council. This injection of funding allowed the Group to develop and extend its facilities and services.
The Centre’s first premise was located at 21 Rose Street; on August 20th 1996 the Centre moved to Fleming House on Renfrew Street. In January 2005, 122 Hill Street, Garnethill became Wing Hong’s present place of gathering. Many thanks to the Glasgow City Council and the supporters of Wing Hong for securing the property. The building is a Blisted building with a wonderful back garden. We are grateful with the help of Strathclyde Police, Glasgow City Council, Burrell Collection and to many other local supporters of the community who came together to help design and construct the garden.
