Settlements Engagement and Transition Support (SETS) Project: working with newly arrived

In March 2019 Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese (AOA) entered a consortium agreement with other Churches to assist the newly arrived people to Australia.

Due to the current pandemic COVID-19 (or Coronavirus), we are currently working remotely.

We do apologise if there should be a delay in our response, please be assured that we will respond as soon as possible.

We will help put you in contact with the relevant services for support and assistance.
