The Settlement Engagement Transition Program (SETS).
The Settlement Engagement Transition Support Program (SETS) provides support and settlement assistance to refugees, humanitarian entrants and newly arrived migrants living, working or studying in Sutherland Shire. Its aim is to improve access to services, develop self reliance and to promote participation in Australian society.
We provide one-on-one casework, support and information relating to housing, education, employment and training, Centrelink, health, family and community services to individuals, families and young people. Our programs include settlement english classes, parents groups, a homework support program, driving programs and recreational activities. We also undertake community development activities which include the implementation of projects that aim to support and empower newly emerging community groups.
A dynamic network of leading organisations supporting refugees and migrants
We are a proud member and one of the 21 organisations, who works together with our partners to support refugee and migrant communities in NSW throughout their settlement journey.
Members include the leading migrant resource centres (MRCs), multicultural services and ethno-specific agencies.
The key vision of the network is the empowerment of refugees and migrants so they can thrive independently in their new home.
Together, we deliver settlement services under the Department of Home Affairs’ Settlement Engagement and Transition Support Program (SETS).
Since 2015, collectively, we have supported 185,886 clients via 546,628 instances of service across 88 Local Government Areas, with 177 client countries/cultures which include over 160 ethnic languages spoken by clients.
The NSW Settlement Partnership offers an innovative service delivery model to address the diverse range of needs of clients, community and government.
Leveraging grassroots experience and the power of a large network, the NSP offers equitable participation in Australian society, promoting social cohesion and productive diversity.
