How is the SSP linked to the Humanitarian Settlement Program (HSP)?
For refugee and humanitarian entrants, the SSP builds upon the foundation services provided by the Humanitarian Settlement Program, by delivering settlement services that assist eligible clients to become fully-functioning members of society. As a consequence, the program promotes social cohesion and productive diversity within the Australian community.
What is the NSW Settlement Partnership (NSP)?
The NSW Settlement Partnership (NSP) is a consortium of community organisations, led by Settlement Services International, delivering settlement services in agreed areas of NSW under the Department of Home Affairs’ Settlement Engagement and Transition Support (SETS) program.
The NSP represents a unique and innovative settlement services model and provides an opportunity for organisations with a long and proud history in service delivery to migrants, refugees and humanitarian entrants to work collaboratively to address the aim and objectives of SETS.
The consortium comprises 21 organisations, including SSI and its 11 member Migrant Resource Centres and multicultural services, as well as nine community organisations located around the state.
