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.
