Defence Families Australia (DFA)
Defence Families of Australia (DFA) is a Ministerially appointed group that represents the views of Defence Families. Its aim is to inform Government and Defence on the needs of the family. Its goal is to ensure quality of life for all Defence Families by providing a recognised forum for their views and by reporting, making recommendations and influencing policy that directly affects families. In turn, this enhances the capability of the Defence Force.
Defence Families can contact DFA to represent them regarding an individual situation or to advocate an issue concerning many families.
