A grant of £500 has been awarded to the Genesis Trust’s Life Skills project. This funding will pay for yoga sessions, yoga mats and music CDs.
The Life Skills project supports people who are vulnerable, often due to mental health issues, homelessness or addiction. Each year around 170 people access varied activities and courses delivered by the project, both creative and practical, which are free of charge.
