The Walcot Street appeal has been set up to fund an ambitious new building project for Genesis Trust in central Bath. The project represents Genesis’ biggest challenge to date. The current building is in very poor condition and needs significant upgrading before it can be used.
The Genesis Centre will provide a permanent home for our charity. The centre will include a new training facility where some of the most marginalised in our community will be helped to access a wide range of educational courses and get support to undertake volunteering, work experience and placements. It will also provide staff and volunteers with a much needed base in the same location.
The appeal is now almost completed and we are in the process of collecting pledges. We have been humbled and delighted by the support we have received from the Bath community and beyond for this exciting and ambitious project. We expect to start building works in 2018.
We would like to thank our donors and supporters, the people of Bath, churches, trusts, companies and other organisations for their incredible effort and generosity in helping us raise this first round of funding.
