Community Development and Capacity Building

Empowering new and emerging community groups and organisations.

About SETS Community Development

Our SETS Community Development projects are participant led, harnessing their strengths and providing them with the resources and knowledge that foster the social and economic mobility outcomes they are striving for. We offer a range of community development workshops and programs across the year that complement the individual casework support participants receive.

Our community development projects incorporate learning and support across a wide range of areas, including:

  • Understanding Australian culture and systems
  • Driver education (learner and probationary licences)
  • Digital and financial literacy
  • Education & Training
  • Employment pathways
  • Women’s health and wellbeing
  • Healthy relationships and community belonging

About SETS Community Capacity Building

The purpose of SETS-Community Capacity Building (CCB) is to empower new and emerging community groups and organisations to support their specific communities. The program enhances the social participation, economic and personal wellbeing of community members, to ensure that positive settlement outcomes are sustained in the long term.

Who is eligible?

Our SETS, CCB program is available to new or emerging community groups or members based in the Casey South region. This includes new and emerging ethno-specific communities, community leaders and emerging community representatives and new and emerging ethno-specific organisations with limited corporate capacity. Unlike other programs, community members can be living in Australia for more than five years.
