About SCoA

The Settlement Council of Australia (SCoA) is the national peak body for settlement. We represent settlement agencies across Australia providing direct services to people of refugee and migrant background. Our goal is to help ensure the best possible settlement outcomes for migrants and refugees settling in Australia.

SCoA operates as a network of settlement service providers. Our aim is to bring settlement service providers together at a national level to create a cohesive voice to improve collaborative strategic planning processes.

On this website you will find a wealth of resources developed by SCoA and those in the settlement sector. Search for opportunities which individuals and organisations can be involved in, seek out submissions and discussion papers developed by SCoA, and find events in your region. All policy papers developed by SCoA can be found on this site, along with current and archived editions of the Settlement News- SCoA’s bi-monthly newsletter. On the links page, you will find links through to many varied resources within the settlement sector.
