National Delegate: Chandell Derham


Chandell joined the DFA team in December 2016, just before the birth of her second child. Now with two small children at home, Chandell truly understands the struggles that Defence Families face with juggling work and family life.

Having been a Defence child and now a Defence partner for over 10 years, Chandell is passionate about working to improve the experiences of all Defence Families. Based in the very active Defence community of Townsville, you will often see her out and about at the wide range of events on offer to Defence Families. Travelling to the beautiful city of Cairns to meet with families in the Far North is what Chandell considers to be one of the best aspects of her role as National Delegate.

Chandell is a dedicated ‘People Person’ who loves a chat and the occasional morning tea, so be sure to say hello.
