Pumpkin Decorating Competition

We are having a pumpkin decorating competition on the 18th of October (next Monday!)

Customers are invited to dress up in their spookiest clothes and design their very own pumpkin to get Genesis ready for Halloween. You can paint, carve, decorate or use any other method that you can imagine, how you create your pumpkin is up to you.

We can’t wait to see all of your creations!

Communication Visit

We have recently had the pleasure of working with Dr Gill, who has been assisting our Chief Exec Rob to encourage the development of other communication channels around Genesis through sensory based activities.

During our music session led by Wikid Drums, Dr Gill and Rob communicated with customers using sound and rhythm in a multi-sensory, person-centred approach. Every communication experience is tailored to the individual, recognising that more subtle ways of conveying information, such as facial expressions and gestures, are a form of non-verbal communication.

Green Bike Project

The Green Bike Project said a final farewell to The Stable Block in Holywells park, which had been their home since 2008 when the project first opened.

The lads enjoyed a coffee whilst taking a trip down memory lane and recounting their tales from over the years.

Although it was an emotional farewell to a building that holds many cherished memories for them, Genesis is thrilled to have the project home where it belongs, and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for the fantastic Green Bike Project.
