About Our Organisation

Lifestyle Solutions is a not-for-profit National Disability and Out of Home Care Service organisation, which commenced operations in Newcastle in 2002 with a vision to support people with disability by walking alongside them, embracing their dreams and sharing their vision.

Now 10 years on, our support has extended beyond disabilities to include a range of support services that are person centred, flexible and responsive to over 1,000 children, young people and adults living in communities across Australia.

Our support focuses on:

  • Disability Support - we partner with people to develop personalised and innovative support systems that reflect their individuality, needs, gifts and cultures.
