Defence families in South Australia can access support through a number of organisations and networks that provide assistance, social connections and wellbeing services.

Defence Member and Family Support and Defence Families of Australia are best equipped to assist families of current serving members across Australia.

More specialised services offered through the Department of Defence include the Partner Employment Assistance Program, Defence School Mentors and support for parents of ADF members.

A number of online and community networks have been established in South Australia and nationally to support and provide advice to current-serving families. These groups are managed by Defence spouses and family members to facilitate local connections within the community.
South Australia also boasts an extensive network of ex-service organisations that provide a range of specialised social connection, health and wellbeing programs as well as support for children of current and former-serving Defence families.
