Lithgow Information and Neighbourhood Centre’s Home Modifications and Maintenance Service provide some maintenance work relating specifically to safety and access for example repairing a set of stairs that may not be suitable for safe access.

As part of Home Maintenance Service we offer a Gardening Service. This service will incur a fee which will be negotiated depending on the size of the job.

The co-ordination and supervision of HMMS jobs are managed by LINC CHSP Services and the work is undertaken by our own  experienced builder and/or qualified trades people. LINC CHSP Service provides a   financial subsidy subject to a means test.
