At SSI, we recognise the critical role the community plays in successful settlement. Community groups who want to learn more about refugees and extend a gesture of welcome, such as a picnic or an excursion to a favourite local site, are encouraged. To ensure these activities are meaningful and suitable for newcomers, please check-in with SSI during the planning phase.
Community members are also encouraged to get involved with refugee resettlement is by volunteering with SSI. Our volunteers:
- Provide social support
- Help with English practice
- Assist with events and excursions
- Provide employment mentoring
- Create social connections
- And much more!
