PIR and the National Disability Insurance Scheme
From 1st July 2016, Nepean Blue Mountains Partners in Recovery began the process of transitioning current clients onto the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) to assess their eligibility for access to the Scheme.

Psychosocial disability, recovery and the NDIS
To ensure service continuity during transition and to support client transition to the NDIS, the Australian government has extended PIR to 30th June 2019. Those PIR clients deemed ineligible for the NDIS will continue to receive PIR care coordination support under Continuity of Support (CoS) arrangements.
