Full report: An evaluation of projects supporting individualised opportunities for young people with disabilities

This study documented and evaluated the activities and outcomes of 15 projects funded by Genio in 2012. The projects intended to explore alternative ways of meeting the work, education, training and recreation needs of young people with disabilities through mainstream services, and be located in ‘real’ community settings. Commissioned by Genio, with support from The Atlantic Philanthropies, this evaluation was undertaken by Richard Wynne and Donal McAnaney of the Work Research Centre and published in 2014. 

Full report: Genio Dementia Programme Evaluation of Year One

This report examines the workings of the Genio Dementia Programme in 2013, the first year of operation, and its impact in relation to the public awareness of dementia, diagnosis, community-based supports, integrated provision, and sustainability. The report also covers the relevance and implications of the programme over the coming years for public policy and its role in heralding and showcasing a new, person-centred approach to dementia care in Ireland. The report draws on information provided by Genio, information-gathering visits to each site to meet with key personnel, and a structured questionnaire completed by each site as part of this evaluation process, which invited the sites to reflect on their progress in the first year. Commissioned by Genio, with support from The Atlantic Philanthropies, this evaluation was undertaken by Prof. Eamon O'Shea and Edel Murphy from the Irish Centre for Social Gerontology, NUI Galway and published in 2014.
