In 2010 Genio established the Genio Trust to identify and support innovative practice across the social service arena. Beginning in the disability and mental health area a fund of €3.8m was used to provide grants to innovative projects throughout Ireland. This combined contributions from Government Health Innovation funds and from the Atlantic Philanthropies. In all 51 grants were awarded on the basis of rigorous evaluation against criteria which emerged as a result of consultation and in agreement with funders. This booklet provides an overview of the projects supported by the Genio Trust in 2010 - 2011.
