Multicultural Services

Multicultural NSW has developed a Settlement Portal to help connect migrants with the information they need to successfully settle in NSW
The Settlement Portal links users directly with practical resources and aims to help all migrants living in NSW including refugees and humanitarian entrants, skilled and family stream migrants, and temporary visa holders such as international students and seasonal workers.
It offers seamless access to information about services and support provided by the three tiers of government as well as funded service providers, community organisations and charities, making it a ‘go-to-place’ for all migrants to NSW.
With a focus on simple descriptions, visual cues and community language resources, the Settlement Portal will also help Multicultural NSW strengthen its focus on new migrants, including humanitarian entrants.
Accessible via a New Arrivals to NSW icon on the Multicultural NSW homepage (, the Settlement Portal offers links to useful organisations, websites and resources, to help with a range of issues.

Multicultural NSW is committed to a continuous improvement plan to ensure that the Settlement Portal remains helpful and up-to-date.
