Migrant Services

 

Purpose

The Settlement Engagement and Transition Support (SETS) and the Community Action for a Multicultural Society (CAMS) programs aim to help new or existing Migrants who live in the Bundaberg area and need assistance with settlement or general access to services.

Our Multicultural Youth Connections program aims to provide support to youth (15-25 years old) from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds to ensure they are not socially isolated.

Eligibility

To access SETS and CAMS services, you must be:

  • a migrant, refugee or asylum seeker; or
  • on a humanitarian, refugee, or family visa, or other eligible visa; or
  • from a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) background.

Please note there are no Visa restrictions to access our Multicultural Youth Connections program service.
