Hunter Defence Support Network

Our mission is to improve the lives of Defence members posted to the Hunter through support and integration with the local community. We understand the challenges Defence members and their families face constantly having to integrate into new communities. Each new posting means reestablishing a home, children’s education, partner employment, along with a myriad of other challenges, often in unfamiliar locations without a network of friends and family for support.
