Settling In Tasman

The Tasman District has become home to a growing number of migrants and their families from a range of different nationalities and backgrounds. This page provides information and links to support networks for newcomers to the district.

Settling In Initiative

The Settling In initiative, administered by Family and Community Services Ministry of Social Development, works alongside migrant and refugee communities so that they:

  • feel welcome, included and a sense of belonging
  • have the support and opportunities to ensure social well-being for themselves and their families
  • have access to services they need
  • are secure and confident in their own identity and culture
  • are able to contribute to their communities in New Zealand
  • have a voice that is respected and heard.

A key feature of Settling In is the collaborative process which connects key agencies and individuals and enables a collective focus on the issues for resident migrants and refugees. This involves a range of government agencies, Council, NGOs, community organisations and migrant and refugee communities.

Settling in Tasman Report

The Settling In Tasman report was completed in 2013. The main purpose of this report is to highlight key issues for migrants who have settled in Tasman and to identify needs, gaps in services and suggestions for further action.
