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!
