Central Adelaide and Hills Partners in Recovery (CAH PIR)


With the replacement of Medicare Locals by new Primary Health Networks, Central Adelaide and Hills Partners in Recovery (CAH PIR) consortium endorsed Neami National as the new lead agency for the region.

Under the leadership of Central Adelaide and Hills Medicare Local, the CAH PIR consortium have delivered a very successful program and Neami National is committed to continuing to facilitate the important work in the region. The consortium continues as Mission Australia, United Care Wesley Bowden, Mind Australia, Mental Illness Fellowship SA, Life Without Barriers and United Care Wesley Port Adelaide.

The transition between lead agencies has been completed and CAH PIR is operating at full capacity with 20 Support Facilitators employed by consortium agencies. CAH PIR continues to be resourced and guided by the previous CAH PIR management team who have transitioned and are now employed by Neami National. The consortium has a priority commitment to system reform outcomes in the areas of social housing, preventative health, domestic violence and intellectual disability over the coming year. Reform outcomes will be achieved through a range of strategies such as an innovation and collaboration grants program, a task force, advocacy, new partnerships and collaboration.
