About Us

Our Vision

A thriving and supportive community in the Bath area where everyone has hope and a future

Our Mission

To support disadvantaged and vulnerable people in the Bath area, offering opportunities for them to make healthy choices and improve their lives and prospects.

Our Motivation

The heart of Genesis is to love our neighbour as ourselves

How we do it

Genesis provides a range of practical and empowering support services to help disadvantaged and vulnerable people in the local community.

We help and enable people

  • to constructively seek help
  • to develop healthier lifestyle choices and improved wellbeing
  • to engage with community, meaningful activity and work

We do this via ten different projects, providing welfare support, personal encouragement, and training and work experience. Trained staff and volunteer teams mobilised from local churches and the wider community help deliver these services.

Our Values

  • We act with compassion and kindness
  • We honour each person as unique and valued
  • We believe there’s always hope for the future
  • We believe everyone has the potential to transform their lives
  • We believe every person can discover purpose for their lives
  • We believe in a mutally supportive community
  • We are straightforward in all our dealings
  • We believe in partnership and collaboration

Our Support

Seven of our projects are entirely volunteer run, and three are run by professional paid staff.

We have built a strong relationship with all the churches across Bath, and they help to support us financially and by providing the majority of our 700 volunteers.  We also receive support and donations from the general public and local businesses and schools.  We are entirely self-funded, and receive no statutory funding or Lottery money.
