Defence maintains community centres and neighbourhood houses around Australia, where community group meetings or family-orientated activities can be held. These community centres play a vital role in building a sense of community, connecting people in their local area and provide valuable social, recreational and educational opportunities for those who attend. DCO provides support to these Defence community centres through funding programs, support for committees of management and general support for the promotion and coordination of activities run by the centres.
