Settlement (SETS)

The goal of the Settlement Engagement Transition Support Program (SETS) is to support and empower refugees and eligible permanent migrants to address their settlement needs in order to improve social participation, economic well-being, independence, personal well-being and community connectedness.

The SETS program is available to humanitarian entrants and certain family stream visa holders in their first five years in Australia.

  • developing English language skills
  • engaging with education and training
  • building employment readiness 
  • empowering youth with their future goals
  • a variety of other tasks which can range from acquiring a Tax File Number (TFN) to support with driving and licencing
