Thank you for your interest in volunteering with SSI.
SSI’s volunteers are a diverse, dedicated and welcoming group of people who are eager to get involved in their community to assist SSI with wide range of activities and projects to meet our goals and objectives.
Our volunteers allow us to add greater depth, range and scope to our programs and services. Some of our programs wouldn't exist without them!
Our volunteers work with asylum seekers, refugees and migrants, families and people living with disability and are involved in supporting and running employment pathway programs, community engagement activities and program and company administrative, communication and marketing support.
Due to COVID – 19, some of our volunteer opportunities have been paused, but they are slowly becoming available again.
Our last work day for the year will be Friday, December 18, 2021.
We will return to work on Monday, January 17, 2022.
During this period, we will only be recruiting volunteers for one of our roles -
HSP Housing Settlement Support
When we return to work in January, we will begin placing volunteers, students and interns for our other roles.
To apply for an SSI volunteer role you must be 18 years or over, and be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
We wish you all the best for the New Year.
Thank you for you ongoing support!
Settlement Services International (SSI) is a community organisation and social business that supports newcomers and other Australians to achieve their full potential.
We take an integrated approach to supporting people to prosper. Through collaboration and innovation, our services wrap around individuals and families to capitalise on their strengths, identify their priorities and meet their current and future requirements.
In 2018, SSI merged with Access Community Services, Brisbane. We now operate locally, nationally and internationally, with offices in metro and regional Queensland, NSW and Victoria.
As a values-driven organisation, we look beyond the immediate needs of individuals and communities and invest in their aspirations. Drawing on feedback from these communities, we have identified unmet needs and invest in innovative initiatives to close these gaps. In the past five years, SSI and its partners have invested more than $5 million in initiatives that add value to contracted programs.
