About Return to Work

Women from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds can face complex and persistent barriers when seeking to re-enter the workforce, but overcoming these challenges and re-entering the workforce can be an empowering experience that brings personal fulfillment and economic benefits, not only for the individuals themselves but also for the wider community. 

SSI’s Return to Work program provides targeted support to women aged 25-44 from CALD backgrounds in south west Sydney, helping participants overcome individual barriers and facilitating their re-entry into the workforce. Funded by the NSW Government, the Return to Work program effectively connects participants with local resources, training programs, employers, job opportunities, and in-language support, empowering them to return to the workforce with confidence. 

How we help

We connect you with in-language assistance, local resources and training programs to build your skills.
Tailored support helps you overcome your unique barriers to employment and build your confidence.
Adopting a place-based approach, we connect you to local information sessions and employment opportunities.

This program is funded and delivered under the Return to Work Pathways Program by the NSW Government, administered by Women NSW.
