About Lifestyle Solutions
Lifestyle Solutions was established in 2001 by a group of inspired people with a commitment to providing innovative support for people living with a disability.
What started in Newcastle (NSW) with a group home supporting 5 individuals has evolved to provide a diverse range of support to more than 1,000 people living with a disability across Australia, as well as children and young people who live in out-of-home care and foster care.
Lifestyle Solutions delivers person-centred support, providing choice and a voice to people living with a disability through individualised support and innovative projects such as:
- community mail programs
- work experience
- work placement
Australia Post is partnering with Lifestyle Solutions to deliver community mail programs in up to 18 communities across Australia.
This program focuses on mail sorting and delivery in regional and remote areas, offering people living with disability the opportunity to provide a valued community service that encourages community participation, relationships and belonging.
In addition, the development of work experience placements in Australia Post will provide unique and valuable opportunities for people living with a disability to gain:
- exposure to different work experiences
- greater understanding of work types and skill requirements
