Hunter Home Modifications is a not for profit community based organisation in Newcastle that provides timely, practical and high quality services that promote a client centered approach, choice, and lifestyle. Our purpose is to make a difference to the lives of people we assist allowing them to remain living safely in their own homes for as long as they are able.
