Settlement Engagement and Transition Support (SETS) Print E-mail
The Settlement Engagement and Transition Support (SETS) program is funded by the Australian Department of Social Services.  The program aims to equip and empower humanitarian entrants, other eligible permanent migrants and their communities to address their settlement needs, in order to improve social participation, economic well-being, independence, personal well-being and community connectedness. The SETS program fills an important gap in the post-arrival period for eligible clients who do not have family and other community supports to rely on.

The program is complementary to the Humanitarian Settlement Program (HSP) and other Commonwealth support to humanitarian entrants and for other vulnerable migrants.

SETS – Client Services provides clients with settlement-related information, advice, advocacy, and assistance to access mainstream and other relevant services. Services will be delivered in accordance with a needs-based approach. Typically client needs will align with the nine priority areas identified in the National Settlement Framework.

SETS – Community Capacity Building helps new and emerging community groups and organisations support their specific communities towards collectively increasing the social participation, economic and personal well-being of community members, to ensure that positive settlement outcomes are sustained in the long term.
