PiR funding until 2019 confirmed

PiR funding until 2019 confirmed

Tue 5 Jan 2016

In late 2015, North Brisbane Partners in Recovery received advice from the Department of Health that funding for the Partners in Recovery (PiR) program would be extended to 30 June 2019.

PiR is in scope to transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) from 1 July 2016, with full roll out anticipated by 2019-20.

The timing and rate of transition is dependent on the outcome of the bilateral agreements with each State and Territory.

The extension of PiR funding until 30 June 2019 will enable an effective transition of PiR to the NDIS,

There will be some minor changes to the program to facilitate transition to the NDIS and to reflect the Australian Government's response to the National Mental Health Commission review of mental health services and programs.

Further information will be communicated in early 2016.
