Description

NZ Red Cross - Refugee Services,  the primary provider of community refugee resettlement programmes in New Zealand, offers the Pathways to Settlement programme which helps introduce families to their new home, and to make their transition to life in New Zealand as smooth as possible. The programme is about connecting families to their new community. Whether it be introducing them to their neighbours,  connecting them to health services, schools and employment opportunities or showing them how to navigate public transport.

With the help of 120 trained staff and 600 volunteers, we support people for up to 12 months after their arrival. The services we offer include:

  • Settlement Support – practical support with day-to-day settling into the community.
  • Settlement planning with families –long term thinking and planning.
  • Orientation information sessions - tools needed to navigate life in a new community.
  • Community integration - linking former refugee families to their wider communities.
