a consulting service specialising in a personal and collaborative approach to support and encourage people to make their own decisions about the life they want to live and to follow their dreams!Find Out More About Who We Are
that people with disability and their families and advocates should have the freedom to make their own choices and be involved in all the decision-making processes for their own lives.
that people with disability should be supported in the fabric of their neighbourhood and local community to have real connections and relationships and to participate in and contribute to everyday life.Find Out More About What We Do
people to dream and plan and to utilise funding and resources to best support and benefit the person with disability. We encourage people to have big dreams for what is possible, to look beyond traditional disability programs and settings and to look at living a typical life in the community to achieve their aspirations and goals.
that there are challenges for people with disability in taking this typical pathway in life and realise that to have full control over their own life involves ongoing work and commitment.
So, it is our goal to mentor each of our participants to develop and implement their unique pathway to a fulfilling life.
Our participants have:
- Moved into their own homes in the community
- Gained employment or developed their own businesses
- Developed friendships and widened their informal networks
- Commenced courses of study
- Been able to travel and have holidays
- Increased their skills and level of confidence and independence
- Experienced improved health and wellbeing
We are committed
to each individual having the best life possible and we always ensure that we go the extra mile to encourage, motivate and empower people in their journey of taking control of their own lives.

"I wish that I had done this years ago! It is the best thing that we have ever done and much better than I had expected. I thought it would be too hard and was scared about it but it hasn’t turned out that way. It has actually eased the burden enormously."
- Patrick Dillon“Since I have been self-managing through Bespoke Lifestyles, my life has kept improving and has changed far beyond my expectations. I now have employment, my own home, holidays, time with friends”
- Workshop Participant
"Over the past years, seeing the direction that disability support has been heading, I have been concerned that parents/families would struggle in taking on yet more responsibility. After today’s workshop, I feel that Bespoke Lifestyles is addressing admirably one of my major areas of concern. Congratulations!"
