The Genesis Trust has been working to alleviate poverty and hardship for local people in Bath since 1995.
We work with people struggling with everyday life – mainly as a result of homelessness, addiction, poverty or disability. We provide the practical support they need to get through today, and the emotional support to look forwards to tomorrow. We do this with compassion, skill and with an attitude of hospitality to all.
Many of our projects are volunteer run, and four 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 who appreciate the work we do in Bath. We are entirely self-funded, and receive no statutory funding or Lottery money.

Christians Against Poverty
Christians Against Poverty exist because nobody should be held hostage by debt and poverty. But the truth is that they are rife in the UK. In a society where people live behind closed doors, thousands are desperately poor. Unable to feed their children, incapable of paying to heat their homes in winter, the grip of poverty is relentless. It breaks families apart and drives many to think that suicide is the only solution.
We are passionate about releasing people in our nation from a life sentence of debt, poverty and their causes. Through our services, which are all run through local churches, we are tackling poverty head on. Our vision is to bring freedom and good news to people in every community through 1,000 CAP projects by 2021.
