NSW Settlement Strategy

The NSW Settlement Strategy is the first of its kind in the state. It brings together existing and new NSW Government initiatives to improve settlement outcomes for people from refugee and refugee-like backgrounds living in NSW.

Multicultural NSW has worked closely with government and non-government stakeholders and heard directly from people with lived experience. This has meant we better understand what services, systems and processes have been working well for people from refugee and refugee-like backgrounds living in NSW, and where we have more to do.

The NSW Settlement Strategy builds on these learnings. It provides a framework for the NSW Government to:

  • have a shared understanding of what successful settlement means
  • continue to deliver services and programs that are working well
  • collaboratively address areas for attention
  • evaluate and apply learnings to improve settlement outcomes in NSW.

The NSW Settlement Strategy will be implemented by the NSW Government from February 2023 to June 2025. The Action Plan will complement and strengthen programs and initiatives underway in NSW that are led by the Commonwealth Government and non-government sector.
