Findings summary: Evaluation of personalised supports in disability and mental health services

A major study evaluating personalised supports for people with disabilities and mental health difficulties, commissioned by Genio, has been completed; ‘An evaluation of personalised supports to individuals with disabilities and mental health difficulties’.This evaluation was conducted by Prof. Roy McConkey and his team from the Ulster University. It is one of the most comprehensive studies of its kind in Ireland and internationally; 197 people with disabilities and mental health difficulties were included from 24 projects, as well as 102 relatives of these individuals and 187 key workers supporting the participants. The views of senior managers of each project were also sought.

In 2010, Genio grant-aided four family-focused projects with a focus on building capacity within families to promote and support the inclusion of their family member with a disability. Genio commissioned a team of researchers from Trinity College Dublin to conduct an evaluation of these four projects. This report is the account of the evaluation.
