New settlement services program now operational in NSW
Today marks the first day of the new Settlement Services Program (SSP) for newly arrived migrants, humanitarian entrants and refugees, delivered by the 22-member consortium NSW Settlement Partnership (NSP).
The SSP delivers core settlement support for humanitarian entrants and migrants in their first five years in Australia focusing on activities to assist clients to become self-reliant and participate equitably in Australian society.
Led by Settlement Services International, the NSP comprises 22 organisations* – SSI’s 11 member Migrant Resource Centres and multicultural services, as well as 10 organisations based around the state including rural areas.
SSI CEO Violet Roumeliotis said: “From today and for the next three years, the partners will deliver settlement services in agreed areas of NSW, under the Department of Social Services’ Settlement Services Program.
“Our members and consortium partners will provide support for eligible clients to promote economic and personal wellbeing, independence and community connectedness. These services can also facilitate pathways to learning English, education and employment readiness.
“For refugee and humanitarian entrants, the new program builds on the foundation services provided by Humanitarian Settlement Services, by delivering services that assist eligible clients to become fully functioning members of society.
“In delivering the SSP, we look forward to engaging with communities and organisations in our regions,” Ms Roumeliotis said.
Manning Valley Neighbourhood Services Inc is a proud member of the NSW Settlement Partnership.
