Lifestart is a not for profit organisation providing early childhood services for children aged from birth to 8 years old living with disability or developmental delay. Established in 1996, Lifestart began when eight families wanted to create a service that gave their children, all of whom had special needs, the best possible start in life.
Today, Lifestart has grown to a flourishing organisation with seven centres and two satellites across Sydney and a head office at Putney.
Lifestart provides early childhood support to a range of intellectual disabilities and developmental delays: from those more widely known conditions such as Down Syndrome and Autism, to rare genetic disorders.
Intergy has been involved with Lifestart for a number of years, recently assisting them with the development and launch of their Oi (Online Inclusion) website, http://www.oi.org.au
