THE second phase of the Genesis Cymru Wales (Wrexham) project was launched by Lesley Griffiths, Labour AM for Wrexham, with the help of children from Bellevue Playgroup in Bellevue Park and several other VIPs.
The Genesis Project has been in existence since 2005 and has already supported more than 500 parents in the Wrexham area.
New funding has been secured for the second phase of the project and over the next six years Genesis Cymru Wales 2 will help another 700 unemployed parents in Wrexham overcome barriers that prevent them from working or accessing training.
The Genesis Project in Wrexham also aims to increase the number of childcare workers in Wrexham through organising free “Making Choices” courses for anyone interested in working with children.
The Genesis team is based in the AVOW building in Egerton Street but a parents adviser is available to meet parents in or nearer their own home if required.
