The Australian Government is inviting applications via an open competitive process to apply for funding to deliver services under the Families and Communities Program – Settlement Services – Settlement Engagement and Transition Support (SETS) – Community Capacity Building activity in each state and territory from July 2019 to June 2022.
SETS is an early intervention program that equips and empowers eligible clients and communities to address their identified settlement needs in order to improve social participation, economic well-being, independence, personal well-being and community connectedness.
The SETS program consists of two components: SETS-Client Services and SETS-Community Capacity Building. The Department has separate grant opportunities for the two components. This grant opportunity relates to SETS-Community Capacity Building only.
Some relatively new and emerging communities may lack capacity or capability to develop information networks and require support to maximise social inclusion and participation. The objective of SETS-Community Capacity Building is to empower new and emerging community groups and organisations to support their specific communities towards collectively increasing the social participation, economic and personal wellbeing of community members, to ensure that positive settlement outcomes are sustained in the long term.
Support may include development of leadership and governance skills, linkages to the broader community, interaction with government and local stakeholders, and access to resources and facilities.
Applications open: 15 May and close: 26 June, 2018 at 2:00pm (AEST).
