Defence maintains community centres and neighbourhood houses around Australia, where community group meetings or family-orientated activities can be held. These community centres play a vital role in building a sense of community, connecting people in their local area and provide valuable social, recreational and educational opportunities for those who attend. DCO provides support to these Defence community centres through funding programs, support for committees of management and general support for the promotion and coordination of activities run by the centres.
There are also a wide variety of Defence community groups and organisations which benefit Defence families and provide a community connection aside from the Defence community centres including:
Defence Community Organisation
FSFP Community Grants
