Genesis Trust is a local and long-standing charity supporting hungry, homeless and vulnerable people in Bath and the surrounding areas.
Via interlinking projects they provide immediate practical help for people in crisis and offer long-term opportunities for them to rebuild their lives. Their projects provide basic essentials such as food, clothing and furniture, as well as mentoring, one-to-one support, training and work experience to support people on their journey towards independence and empowerment.
Their vision is a thriving community where everyone has hope and a future. Over the past few years there has been an increase in the amount of people sleeping rough in Bath, using Genesis’ services and requesting emergency food. Their work is vital in preventing further marginalisation and for giving people the opportunity to better their lives and prospects.
