Cities and Settlement
Ensuring that newly arrived refugees settle effectively into their new local communities across Australia offers a range of great benefits to our society and economy. Whilst our settlement services are comparatively strong, there are opportunities to improve our services and do much better. In December 2015 we released Grand Alibis which showed how employment services were failing our most vulnerable citizens. In February 2017 we released, Settling Better: Reforming refugee employment and settlement services, which identified major barriers preventing refugees from finding a suitable job, and outlined options for breaking them down and simultaneously improving services.
