Genio Inviting Fresh Round of Grant Applications

In partnership with the Health Service Executive, Genio Trust is currently inviting applications for funding to support young people with disabilities to access work, education, training, and recreation opportunities in September 2012.

The deadline for applications is Friday, 3 August @ 5pm.

This fund is intended to:

  • support the development of individualised responses for school leavers;
  • support individuals currently in day services or rehabilitative training to move to individualised responses and free up capacity.

Applications are particularly welcome from:

  • multi-stakeholder consortia including families, business, community and training agencies who can come together to provide individualised responses to school leavers with disabilities;
  • In order to address areas with specific needs, applications will be invited from both new and existing providers,
