Our Community Engagement Team offers services to the newly arrived to ensure a smooth transition to the Australian way of life.
We target refugees and humanitarian entrants who have been in Australia for less than five years and are dealing with priority issues of settlement, and we support our clients to enhance their knowledge and ability to access and navigate mainstream services and become independent.
The Settlement Engagement and Transition Support (SETS) project is funded through the NSW Settlement Partnership by the Department of Home Affairs. Eligible clients include Refugees, Humanitarian Entrants and newly arrived families in Blacktown and the outer western Sydney Statistical Districts (SSDs).
Our bilingual case workers are experienced in delivering a culturally appropriate service to newly arrived refugees, humanitarian entrants and migrants to Australia.
