The SSI - Access Merger

Access - part of the SSI group, SSI Settlement Services InternationalAccess Community Services is one of Australia’s leaders in multicultural issues, with over 30 years of experience in the provision of settlement, employment, training, youth support services, housing and social enterprise opportunities for migrants, refugees and Australian born clients. Services are delivered right across Queensland with a particular focus on the south-east, including Logan City, Ipswich City and the Gold Coast.

Access became a subsidiary of SSI in December 2018. Access and SSI have shared values and a similar portfolio of high-quality programs and services for clients. We have worked together on several programs over the years such as the Ignite Small Business Start-ups program and this merger presents opportunities to collaborate and enhance services and programs further.

Working as one organisation, we can strengthen our position to support service growth in Queensland and NSW. The collaboration and the joining of services and resources will provide better outcomes for clients, funding partners and key stakeholders.
