Advocating for Defence families

Advocacy Map

View DFA Advocacy Map (Nov. 2021 version)

This Advocacy Map is a snapshot in time of the advocacy work currently being undertaken by Defence Families of Australia (DFA). This is the first public version of this document, and will be a dynamic tool released quarterly through the DFA newsletter, The Advocate.

This is a working document, with the full internal version being constantly updated. The internal version also includes details of the decision makers, allies, and business case for each advocacy entry.

The aim of this document is to provide transparency of the work DFA does, and to offer the opportunity for defence families and other stakeholders to support these advocacy efforts. It will continue to developed and refined over time.

If you have questions relating to any advocacy entry, or wish to provide feedback on any issues not already listed, please email DFA National Policy and Projects Officer, Chantel Williams:
