Genio, formally known as the Person Centre, was established in 2008 and renamed Genio in 2010. Genio is committed to helping encourage and promote enterprise and innovation by public, private and social sector organisations to combat the exclusion from society of people with a disability and those with mental health difficulties. One of the main ways that Genio has encouraged our project was the awarding of a grant.
Genio Grantees 2010
On the 22nd of October 2010 Áiseanna Tacaíochta was one of the successful 50 candidates to be awarded Genio funding. This was a huge boost to Áiseanna Tacaíochta as this funding has greatly enhanced our project and helped with the recruitment of new staff. Genio has been supporting and offering us guidance on issues that have arisen so far. This direction complements the advice that we are receiving from our Stakeholder group and is invaluable to us as we ourselves continue to learn through this process.
The year ahead
Genio will be monitoring our progress and Áiseanna Tacaíochta has been selected to feature in a Genio filming project “Building Blocks to a Full Life”. We are extremely happy with this support and look forward to the good work we can do together.
