Genio is a European organisation based in Ireland working with philanthropy and government at national and EU levels. Our expertise is in supporting social services to solve complex problems and scale social innovations. We do this by helping to bring stakeholders together to navigate the pathway through the challenges of system reform; and to help implement and scale more personalised, community-based and cost-effective social services.

For over 10 years, Genio has successfully worked across some of the most significant and challenging social service fields in Ireland including disability, homelessness, mental health, dementia and addiction. We have helped to facilitate change and improvements in services for over 9,000 people directly and in many cases, our programmes are reaching whole populations of need, underpinning national reform programmes.

In Europe, we recently launched the European Social Catalyst Fund (ESCF), a new initiative designed to have significant impact on some of Europe’s most pressing social challenges. The ESCF has been established and co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, Genio (Ireland), the Robert Bosch Stiftung (Germany) and the King Baudouin Foundation (Belgium). Genio is leading the rollout of the ESCF.

As a non-profit organisation we strive for the highest possible standards in governance and transparency.
