Settlement Support Nelson Tasman

Settlement Support Nelson Tasman

Historically settlement services in New Zealand have been provided by a range of government and non-government agencies and have not always been well connected. To make settlement work better, the government is addressing issues at a grass-roots community level in addition to the central government level.

Settlement Support Nelson Tasman is one of 19 local initiatives around the country that will better connect migrants and refugees to local agencies and services that support their settlement, as well as provide a clear point of contact and referral that will direct them to where they can get assistance.

It is part of Settlement Support NZ, a national network facilitated by the Department of Labour.

Seminars in cross cultural work

Refugee Services offers a training course for people interested in cross-cultural work. Those who have experienced living in a different culture, those who have genuine concern for people embarking on a new, challenging way of living, and those who can offer organised, practical support are welcome to apply.

Learn about the refugee experience, gain new life-skills, make new friends and find a role in the Nelson community that may last a life-time.

For more information on the next available seminar, telephone Dawn at Refugee Services Aotearoa New Zealand, +64 3 539 4509 or +64 3 548 4978. NZQA Approved.

One-stop shop website

New migrants to Nelson are now able to get the help they need with a one-stop shop website guiding them on the ins-and-outs of living in Nelson. Nelson Tasman Settlement Support’s new home contains useful information and lots of local organisation contacts to help newcomers find schools for their children, locate housing, get around town and start making sense of the health system.
