Settlement engagement & Transition support program (SETS)

Sydney MCS assists newly arrived migrants, humanitarian entrants and refugees with settling into their new country through our Settlement Engagement and Transition Support (SETS) Program. The SETS Program is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Social Services (DSS).


We provide support to humanitarian entrants and migrants during the first five years of arrival in Australia who reside in the following Local Government Areas: 

City of Bayside LGA

City of Randwick LGA

City of Sydney LGA

• Lower North Shore Suburbs

Please refer to program eligibility list to check which visa subclasses we can assist.

Our service aims to identify the knowledge, skills, and talent of our clients in order to address their settlement needs and connect them with learning opportunities, employment, community, and support groups.

We offer free and confidential support. Please call us on 02 9663 3922 or email us at to find out more.




Our multi-lingual case workers work with you towards living empowered and independently in Australia. We provide settlement related information, advice, advocacy or referral services including Centrelink, utility companies, housing support, etc.

Education and Training
We have a key role in helping you acquire skills in the English language, plan an education pathway and build employment readiness with services complementing other settlement and mainstream services. 

Employment Support
We can provide free employment support by an HR professional, who will guide and mentor you through your job search, resume writing and interview practice.

Capacity Building
At SMCS we support groups, new and emerging organisations to collectively increase the social participation, economic and personal well-being of community members.
