Membership of Defence Force Welfare Association (DFWA) is open to any serving or former member of the Australian Defence Force, including Reserves; and their spouses, widows or widowers. The DFWA needs your membership if it is to continue to be successful in providing advice and support to its members. A strong membership helps us defend and improve conditions of service, and continue to provide support to those who may need help in obtaining their entitlements.

The Association has a number of membership categories: Ordinary, Virtual (ADF), Corporate and Institutional, as well as number of special other categories. In addition, DFWA welcomes Corporate Sponsorship. Each of these is described in more detail, with links to relevant application forms, in the pages under this tab.
