Advocating for Defence families

Submission to Royal Commission

Defence Families of Australia (DFA) is the national advocacy body for ADF families. The DFA team are all partners of current serving ADF members. We advocate for Defence families at both a regional and national level. We have National Delegates located near most major bases, who know their communities and can advocate locally for families. Our Canberra based team look at national issues by researching, writing submissions, meeting with stakeholders and participating in national working groups. 

Our submission on the Terms of Reference for the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide can be found here.
