Settlement Action network

ARA, as the lead Agency in the refugee sector, has forged strong partnerships with many service providers. ARA receives many requests to sit on working parties, committees and peak bodies.

ARA is the convenor of the Settlement Action network (SAN) with the view to implementing ideas raised in SAN network meetings, to produce tangible benefit for the SGP client group.

SAN develops practical projects that are deemed beneficial for the SGP client group. These are projects unlikely to be tackled by any one agency alone, but can be achieved by a group of agencies.

The SAN has a number of working parties that focus on particular areas and issues and include

  • YSAN – Youth Issues
  • FSAN – Family Issues
  • CDSAN – Community Development
  • ESAN – Education
  • HSAN – Health
  • LGSAN – Local Government
  • CPSAN – Crime Prevention

ARA has strong working partnerships with a broad range of service providers, both refugee specific and general, that assists ARA to support new arrivals to successfully settle in South Australia.
