Western Sydney Partners In Recovery (WSPIR) aims to support people who have severe and persistent mental health concerns with complex needs. The main focus is to help improve the quality of life of a person, allowing them to restore a sense of hope and social inclusion in the western Sydney community.
From 1 July 2016, WSPIR began the process of transitioning current clients onto the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to assess their eligibility for access to the Scheme.
To ensure service continuity during transition and to support client transition to the NDIS, the Australian government has extended WSPIR to 30th June 2019.
The WSPIR program will cease to operate as of 30 June 2019.
Anyone who is registered in the program at 30 June 2019, will either transfer to the National Psychosocial Support Extended program (NPS2), to receive ongoing support to transition to the NDIS, or those clients found ineligible for the NDIS will continue to receive care coordination support under the Continuity of Support (CoS) program.
New referrals for clients who would have been eligible for WSPIR will go through a new service, NPS Core, which will be commissioned from Monday 1st July 2019. Further details of this new program and the intake process will be released shortly.
