About Glasgow Life

Glasgow Life was established in 2007 to deliver cultural and leisure services on behalf of, but not exclusively for, Glasgow City Council.  It is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status.

Glasgow Life delivers a diverse range of services and activities across the city, through a portfolio of 153 directly managed and leased facilities and outdoor recreation sites.  Its services include Arts, Communities, Events, Libraries, Museums, Music, Sport and Young Glasgow.

It works with communities and a range of partners across the public, private, and voluntary sectors in order to inspire Glasgow's citizens and visitors to lead richer and more active lives through culture and sport. In order to achieve this, its services work towards six strategic objectives:

  • To enhance the health and wellbeing of people who live, work and visit the city.
  • To create an environment where enterprise, work and skills development are encouraged.
  • To provide opportunities for making positive life choices in a safe, attractive and sustainable environment.
  • To create a culture of learning and creativity that lets people flourish in their personal, family, community and working lives.
  • To enhance and promote the city’s local, national and international image, identity and infrastructure.
  • To demonstrate the ongoing improvement in the quality, performance and impact of the services and opportunities we provide.
