Defence Families Australia

Defence Families of Australia (DFA) is the official ADF families’ advisory body to the Minister for Defence Personnel and Chief of the Defence Force (CDF). DFA sits outside of Defence systems, allowing them independence and impartiality to act in the best interests of ADF families.

The team at Defence Families of Australia (DFA) are all partners of current serving ADF members, which gives them a unique insight into the needs of future policy affecting Defence families.

They have National Delegates located across Australia near most major bases who know their communities and who can advocate for you at a local level.
