Welcome To The Glad Foundation

The Glad Foundation is a charity based in Shawlands, in the southside of Glasgow.

We provide a wide range of free and affordable music workshops for people of all ages and abilities.

About Us

The Glad Foundation was started to put into action the social and community purpose of its sister organisations, The Glad Cafe and Glad Rags Thrift – to create opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to engage meaningfully and creatively with music and each other, regardless of their experience or background.

We began life running a range of small initiatives funded by the support of Glad Rags, the Glad Community Choir, donations of money, and grants. These included samba drumming with young carers in Pollok, songwriting with students in Mount Florida Primary, and a regular music group for young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

With the added support of grant funders like Creative Scotland, Awards For All/Big Lottery Fund, and The Robertson Trust, as well as the continuing support of our sister organisations and donations from The Irvine Sneddon Memorial Trust and other generous supporters, PLUS our own fundraising through events like the Kiltwalk, we are delighted to be doing more than ever before. Visit our ‘WHAT’S ON’ page for more information on our current projects.

We are offering remote music sessions to autistic children in the Central belt of Scotland who are struggling to access school full time, this is an extension of our after school sessions, have a listen to our podcast youtu.be/fIvvcuVkAFI to hear participant's views on remote music sessions! ...
