Defence community groups and centres play a vital role in supporting and accommodating Defence members and their families. They provide facilities for Defence members and their families to meet and engage with each other in a supportive and safe environment. They also provide a rally point for Defence communities to connect with local command, especially during times of deployment and absence from home.
The Community Support Coordination Program provides funding support to Defence community groups to enable the employment of a community support coordinator who will be responsible for coordinating the delivery of valuable services and support to Defence families in their local community.
The Community Support Coordination Program Guidelines provide valuable information to committees of management and coordinators about funding and reporting requirements. The Guidelines also provide information about ways to strengthen the governance and capacity of Defence community groups running in these centres.
