Thank you for supporting our Christmas Appeal! 

All of us here at Genesis Trust are delighted to have received so much support for our recent Christmas appeal. Thank you for your incredible generosity over the past few months. Every donation will make a difference in providing vital support for local people through Genesis Life Projects. Because of you, many more people in and around Bath can begin interacting with Genesis Life Projects, moving from a place of crisis onto a journey to independence.  

Thanks to your support we can now help more people like Tina, who was only 18 years old when her mother walked out of their home after suffering a breakdown. Tina was left to care for her 16-year-old brother whilst trying to cope with constant anxiety, low self-worth and fear of being abandoned again.  

Tina was referred onto The Life Course at our Gateway Centre to support her ill-mental health. But she found it offered her much more along the way.  

 “I feel much better about dealing with emotions, but I also know I’m not the only one dealing with problems.” 

The Life Course enabled Tina to interact with people again, which for so long, her anxiety had prevented her from doing.  A lot of the changes she experienced came from the trust she felt within the group. Upon finishing the Life Course, Tina has had the strength to re-engaged with her mother and feels more confident to move forward with her life.  

Tina’s story shows how life changing interactions with Genesis Life Projects can be. These changes are made possible because of your generous support. 

Sue, who runs our Life Projects says, “I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our supporters through this appeal. Thank you for trusting us in what we’re doing for people here at Gateway, and for enabling us to work with more people who need us here in Bath.”
