Glasgow Council on Alcohol (GCA) is a registered charity that is governed by a Board of Directors, whose members are elected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The Board of Directors employs a Chief Executive Officer to manage the organisation.

GCAs mission is to reduce the harm caused by alcohol misuse by providing a range of high quality services.

We aim to:

  • Improve alcohol and drug education
  • Influence the social climate to reduce harmful alcohol consumption
  • Improve health and wellbeing
  • Address inequalities in service provision and enable wider access to services
  • Provide services for black and ethnic minority members
  • Work alongside funders and other service providers in the provision of appropriate services

GCA values and respects the diversity of people and understands that:

  • Health is vital to individuals, family relationships, communities and society
  • Everyone has the right to live in safety
  • Everyone has the right to be accepted and treated equally
  • Everyone should have access to alcohol education, information and high quality confidential services
  • Services should be client centred, respectful and non-judgemental

Staff and volunteers at Glasgow Council on Alcohol have a responsibility, individually and collectively, to ensure their behaviour does not result in exploitation, oppression, physical or emotional harm to others.
