About SETS Client Services
Most people know our Settlement, Engagement and Transition Support program as SETS. The program is delivered in partnership with the Australian Government and helps empower community members to find solutions that address their settlement needs.
The aim of the SETS program is to improve social participation, economic wellbeing, independence, personal wellbeing and community connectedness. We work with individual clients in their first five years in Australia to guide them along their exciting, but sometimes challenging journey of building a life here.

- arrived in Australia in the past five years
- humanitarian and refugee entrants
- family stream migrants with low levels of English
- some other migrants with permanent residency
This program provides services to individuals, families and communities living in the suburbs of Casey South; Cranbourne, Cranbourne East, Cranbourne North, Cranbourne South, Cranbourne West, Clyde, Clyde North, Hampton Park, Lynbrook, Lyndhurst, Pearcedale, Tooradin, Narre Warren South (East) and Narre Warren South (West).
