The Service Reform Fund is an initiative of Atlantic Philanthropies, the Department of Health and the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, the HSE and Genio. The Fund supports reforms in homelessness, disability and mental health.

These reforms will focus on ensuring that person-centred and recovery-oriented services and supports are embedded, in line with government policy.

Governance of the Fund is by means of an Oversight Group, chaired by the Department and includes representation from the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, the HSE and Genio and up to last year The Atlantic Philanthropies.
