Recycle your small electrical waste and help local good causes

Did you know that any BetterPoints you earn or win can be donated? 

The Genesis Trust are a Bath-based charity and one of many great local causes you can help with your BetterPoints. They are a long-standing charity supporting hungry, homeless and vulnerable people in Bath and the surrounding areas. Via interlinking projects they provide immediate practical help for people in crisis and offer long-term opportunities for them to rebuild their lives.

Their projects provide basic essentials such as food, clothing and furniture, as well as mentoring, one-to-one support, training and work experience to support people on their journey towards independence and empowerment. Their vision is a thriving community where everyone has hope and a future.

Over the past few years there has been an increase in the amount of people sleeping rough in Bath, using their services and requesting emergency food. Their work is vital in preventing further marginalization and for giving people the opportunity to better their lives and prospects.

To donate BetterPoints to them visit the 'donate' section of the app and search for 'Genesis'.
