Working with service providers to improve settlement outcomes

On Thursday 30th of November MRC Tas hosted an information session with southern staff of the Department of Education English as Additional Language (EAL).

The session provided EAL staff with information about MRC Tas training opportunities, the new Humanitarian Settlement Program service model, as well as the many Settlement programs and projects available for newly arrived migrants.

The Phoenix Centre provided information on available support such as counselling, group work, community capacity building and advocacy. The session concluded with a Q&A for systemic issues being experienced in the school environment.

MRC Tas values working with other service providers to ensure clients receive quality services to assist in their settlement journey and life in Tasmania.

Participant Feedback:

‘….I had no idea how much MRC Tas offered for people from CALD backgrounds. I will definitely be calling and checking the website more often.’

‘It is so good to know that there are people out there who can assist our families in their transition to their new life… I no longer feel like I need to do this alone…’
