DAFFYS - Friends & Families of the Defence Academy
WELCOME to the Friends & Families of the Defence Academy website.
We are open to the spouses and partners of all those who work and serve in the Defence Academy and Shrivenham Station.
In line with many units and stations, we run a wide range of activities, which are held within and outside the military grounds.
Please see the Events Calendar for more details on forthcoming events - these are also given down the right hand side of this page in the section in pink.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Friends and Families of the Defence Academy (DAFFYS) is to enable all families, British, International and from all faiths, to get together for the purpose of building friendships, offering support and having fun.
The DAFFYS are a participant driven organization and rely on volunteers to sponsor and manage the activities for the Defence Academy community.
