National Settlement Framework

The National Settlement Framework is a high level structural blueprint for Commonwealth, State and Territory and Local Government, to work in partnership to effectively plan and deliver services that support the settlement of migrants and new arrivals in Australia.  The Framework sets out focus areas for the three tiers of government to regularly engage and work together in partnership on, and to collaborate with stakeholders.

Governments and stakeholders will be guided by the structures and initiatives in this Framework to make planning decisions on the provision of settlement and support services and to deliver coordinated, client-centric services, informed by research and evaluation.

The National Settlement Framework was developed in consultation with all State and Territory Governments.
