PIR and NDIS transition

From July 2017, Partners In Recovery will support PIR consumers to transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (also called the NDIS). The NDIS is the new way of providing support to Australians with disability including psychosocial disability.

NDIS supports may help you achieve goals in many aspects of your life, including independence, involvement in your community, education, employment and health and wellbeing.

We are here to help PIR consumers transition to NDIS supports. SESPIR will:

  • Assist with testing eligibility and applying for NDIS support.
  • Provide support coordination to people with an NDIS support plan.
  • Provide PIR support to people who are ineligible or not interested in NDIS supports.

For further information, please call the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) on 1800 800 110 refer to the NDIS website

"Participating in PIR has changed my life because I am having people take notice of me, and what my needs are. Being able to succeed in what I want to do is important. Since PIR has come along, I am actually succeeding in what I want to do."

"I have people I can contact and people available to me that I didn’t know existed. I always thought there were only one or two services out there that could help me but Matthew (my Support Facilitator) gave me a whole list."

"When working with consumers who are homeless and suffering with mental ill-health it is so important to have a flexible approach in order best meet their needs. We are very appreciative of PIR staff coming to our Tuesday breakfast program each week where they have become very well known to our consumers who are often happy to now self-refer and address problems with PIR before it becomes a huge issue."
