This toolkit has been developed to respond to the information needs of rural and regional communities looking to settle migrants locally, be they migrants coming in from big Australian cities or overseas, entrants to Australia on skilled working visas or on humanitarian grounds.
At its core, this toolkit is based on interviews with community champions of regional settlement, many of whom have initiated programs for their communities with little to no formal guidance on how to make settlement ‘happen’.
By synthesising the rich interview findings with key learnings from past regional migration approaches (both in Australia and overseas), this toolkit identifies best practice for regional settlement and outlines the key players and areas for action underpinning regional settlement success.
