Volunteering

Volunteering can be a great way to learn new skills, meet new people and improve your chances of getting a job. It's also a great way to give something back to the community and being there for other people who may need some extra support.




Genesis Connect run the highly successful 'Volunteer into Employment Programme' for residents looking to gain relevant skills and experience for the workplace. To date we have supported over 100 volunteers into employment, and many have secured jobs within Genesis.
