Prepared by Pádraic Fleming Mental Health and Social Research Unit Maynooth University, this reseach brief evaluates the implementation of four individualised funding initiatives for people with a disability.

The brief presents a summary of the main lessons learned according to the key people involved in these four individualised funding initiatives, including individuals with a disability who participated in the initiatives; family members; paid and unpaid advocates; and staff members from within the four organisations. A number of recommendations are made based on the key lessons presented and are intended to inform, challenge and promote discussion.

This research was funded by the Genio Trust with support from the Atlantic Philanthropies and the HRB as part of the SPHeRE Programme and is free to download at
