The Australian Government is inviting applications via a closed non-competitive process to apply for funding to deliver services under the Families and Communities Program – Settlement Services – Settlement Engagement and Transition Support (SETS) – Client Services from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2022.

SETS is an early intervention program that equips and empowers eligible clients and communities to address their identified settlement needs in order to improve social participation, economic well-being, independence, personal well-being and community connectedness.

The objective of SETS-Client Services is to equip humanitarian entrants and other vulnerable migrants in their first five years in Australia with the knowledge and skills to identify, understand and take action to address their settlement needs. Services will be delivered in accordance with a needs-based approach. Clients will be provided with settlement-related information, advice, advocacy, and assistance to access mainstream and other relevant services. Clients may also be provided high quality casework to address issues arising during their settlement experience. Typically client needs will align with the nine priority areas identified in the National Settlement Framework.

SETS-Client Services has a key role in facilitating acquisition of English language skills, supporting engagement with education and training and building employment readiness with services complementing other settlement and mainstream services.
