Our work

Settlement Casework

Culturally responsive settlement support can help lay meaningful foundations for people’s lives in their first 5 years in Australia.

Our settlement casework can support women to access information, community connections and important resources that shape personal growth. It can also assist with developing social and economic contributions that can be made to community.

Our settlement casework supports are geared to assist Muslim women – often coming from countries marked by devastation, conflict and forced displacement – as they face the challenges and barriers to accessing services and engaging with the broader Australian society.

Our settlement casework can support women to access information, community connections and important resources that shape personal growth.

Our casework involves assessment, information provision, referral, advocacy and support across a range of areas. These include:

Housing

Relationship issues (e.g. separation and divorce)

Education

Employment

Racism, discrimination, racial vilification

Health and wellbeing

Mental health, isolation, counselling

Recreation and social connections

Legal issues

The Australian Muslim Women's Centre for Human Rights acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land on which we conduct our work, and that sovereignty has never been ceded. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.
