EOI – Council for Women and Families United by Defence Service
Tuesday 3 December, 2019
Service within the Australian Defence Force (ADF) has impacts beyond the serving member. Families are both the primary support network for members throughout ADF service and beyond, whilst also directly affected by the service of their loved ones. Women who wear our nation’s uniform, are mothers, wives, sisters and daughters. This can bring a unique set of challenges. The needs of women and families united by defence service are not always understood or visible and their voices are not always heard.
The Council for Women and Families United by Defence Service (the Council) brings these voices together to provide timely and comprehensive advice to Government on matters that involve or affect them, drive coherent policy outcomes and advocate on behalf of women and families united by defence service. The Council is built on the foundations of contemporary lived experience, inclusivity, collaboration, compassion and respect. Members of the Council represent the broad cross-section of the veteran community and include, partners, widows, parents, current and ex-serving members, reservists and chaplaincy and all bring an interest and passion for supporting veterans and their families.
The Council for Women and Families United by Defence Service is currently seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from suitably experienced persons to join the Council in an advisory capacity. To find out more, or to apply please visit the DVA jobs website.
