What’s in it for you?

Volunteering for the Genesis Trust can be a great way to boost your CV with…

  • New skills
  • Training
  • Practical experience
  • A reference from your project manager

Our volunteer projects also enable you to make positive social and environmental impacts. For example, our furniture project helps the local community to reuse and recycle household items, which prevents tons of material from going to landfill every year!

Here are some ideas!

  • Organise a fundraiser - Run your own fundraising event (with the support of our expert fundraisers) to raise funds to support the vital work of the Genesis Trust in Bath.
  • Organise a collection of clothing or toiletries - Set-up a collection point, raise awareness within your chosen group, print or distribute the items needed and arrange to bring the items to our Lifeline Centre.
  • Co-ordinate food collection from student accommodation - Organise the collation and collection of excess food across student accommodation on campus and/or in the city. Communicate with students, publish guidance on what is/ isn’t suitable for collection, provide collection points and liaise with Bath Foodbank.
  • Take part in one of our challenge events! - Raise money for the Genesis Trust by getting sponsored to do one of our challenge events including The Bath Half, The London Marathon, Skydiving and many more! Check out our challenge events page for more details!
  • Become a Student Engagement Officer - Be a main point of contact between your University and Genesis Trust Bath. Come up with innovative ways to engage the student population. This could include: fundraising, organising collections, recruiting volunteers and awareness-raising.
  • Do you have a new idea for ways that you could help us? If you have skills that you would like to share with us, then we would love to hear from you!
