Moving back into civilian life

0

ADF members planning to leave the Defence Forces can attend an ADF Transition Centre to obtain practical guidance and information to help them transition seamlessly into civilian life.

ADF Transition Centres are located across Australia and can link members and their families into Defence and Australian Government support services. They can also help with the administrative aspects of separation.

Additionally, Defence holds Transition Seminars nationally to help ADF members and their families prepare for separation from Defence.

For more information, advice and resources visit the Transition Support Services website or contact the Defence Family Helpline on DefenceFamilyHelpline@defence.gov.au or
1800 624 608. Commanders and ADF members can also access the Transition Support Services page on the Defence intranet.

You can also download a factsheet about transition support in our Resources section.

ADF Transition Handbook

The ADF Transition Handbook is a guide to help ADF members and their families prepare for separation from the military. Early planning and preparation will assist with a smooth transition into civilian life, and the ADF Transition Handbook is a great resource for both members and families – there’s even a handy checklist at the back to help you step through the process.
