Online referral form

PIR provides assistance to people with severe and persistent mental illness and complex needs who require support from multiple agencies. PIR aims to better support these people, and their carers and families, by exploring how services and supports from multiple sectors with which they come into contact, can work in a more collaborative, coordinated, and integrated way. PIR will facilitate better coordination of, and more streamlined access to, clinical and other needs of these people.

As of 1st July 2016, PIR can assist eligible people to transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or to explore continuing supports for people ineligible for NDIS. PIR also provides Coordination of Supports (COS) for those people with an NDIS package.

NDIS in Tasmania

The first stage of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) began in Tasmania on 1 July 2013 for young people, aged 15 to 24. Read about how you can access the NDIS in Tasmania (link is external).

From 1 July 2016, the NDIS began to roll out by age groups.  This will take three years.
