Welcome to Spring Lifestyle Supports – a fresh approach to disability support on the Sunshine Coast.
What makes us different? We’re small and we plan to stay that way so that we can continue to offer truly personalised service to every person we support.

Live as independently as possible in your existing home, or let us help you explore your options.

We can help you understand your independent living options and plan your support needs so that you can choose where and with whom you live.
Supported Independent Living (SIL) – for people with high support needs to live independently.
- Suited to people who require a significant level support throughout the day and overnight
- Available to people who are living alone or to a group of people who live together and share supports

We can support you with all of the household routines and activities that need to be completed each day so that you can live as independently as possible.

Our fully qualified counsellor has over 20 years’ experience working with people affected by disability. She is committed to assisting people though person-centred counselling practices and works with an unconditionally empathetic yet positive approach. She is passionate about assisting people to express their feelings, reach their goals and maximise their dreams.
We offer flexible service delivery with options including verbal, written and
visual communication methods. Technology and drawing materials can be used to enhance communication.
Counselling support is available to assist people on a regular basis to manage ongoing issues such as self-esteem, stress, anxiety or depression. It is also available to assist people to work through any difficult situations they may be facing, such as life transitions, relationship issues, loss or trauma.
Short Term Accommodation (STA)
We can support you to have a short term break away from your normal supports. STA funding covers the cost of accommodation, food, activities and support for the duration of your time away.
- An opportunity to plan and experience a mini holiday, try new things and meet new people
- Develop new independent living skills and experience what it might be like to live away from the family home
- Allow your informal supports an opportunity to take a break from their caring role
- Temporary supports if your usual support network is unavailable for a short period of time
Support coordination is an NDIS funded support that helps participants to:
- Understand their NDIS plan, navigate the NDIS and make informed decisions about the supports they receive
- Connect with appropriate services and activities
- Set up service agreements with the participant’s chosen support providers
- Monitor plan budgets and the effectiveness of supports
- Ensure participants are getting the most out of their current NDIS plan
and help prepare for future plan reviews, etc.
Our Support Coordination services are provided independently of other services we provide. We will always provide you with impartial information on services provided by a range of providers so that you can choose the services that best meet your needs.
