Advocating for Defence families

Project Officer

Project Officer

Kathryn Edwards

I commenced as National Project Officer for Defence Families of Australia (DFA) in October 2021. In this role, I will be supporting and overseeing the implementation of the DFA Governance Framework, designed to deliver effective advocacy for current serving Australian Defence Force (ADF) members and their families.

I have a strong connection with the ADF, as the wife of a current serving member in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), and other family members who have served in the ADF in present day and past conflicts.

I have over ten years’ experience in the areas of risk management and compliance; most recently providing operational support to Executive management in managing and coordinating activities for the Risk and Compliance Division of a financial institution.

I am excited to be a part of DFA during this period of change and working for an organisation that supports and drives positive change for the ADF community.
