Join a DSNSG Support Group

It’s easy to join and become a member of the Defence Special Needs Support Group. You can either phone us direct or send us an email.  If emailing, we just need a few details from you, then either the National Coordinator or one of the local Coordinators will call you and have a chat to see what sort of assistance and support our group can provide.

Please send an email to and please include:

  • Your name
  • Your email address
  • The DSNSG region closet to you (see the Find a DSNSG Group menu above for our current list)
  • A contact phone number

When we contact you and so we can put you on the local family list to receive our information and have access to our supports, we will need to know:

  • Your spouse’s name
  • Your address
  • Your landline or mobile phone
  • The name of the person with the special needs (and if a child, the date of birth)
  • The diagnosis or type of special needs
  • Type of Service – Navy, Army or Air Force

All information collected will remain private and confidential. However, please supply at least a phone number or an email address otherwise we will not be able to contact you and you won’t be able to receive our information.
