Settlement Support is a service offered by Settlement services – a division of Immigration New Zealand.
The Settlement Support NZ network links migrants and refugees with services and agencies in their local community. This service is free to migrants in the first two years they are in New Zealand.
Finding information and services can be a challenge to new residents. Settlement Support NZ is a clear point of contact for information to help newcomers settle. There are 18 Settlement Support NZ agencies funded by the Immigration New Zealand.
Email or phone (0800 776 948) the local co-ordinator with your questions. They can help with local knowledge about anything from details about daily life in New Zealand, local facilities or accommodation to how to get started with finding a job.
The co-ordinators run regular workshops around the country on many topics of interest to new migrants. Settlement services also produce a free magazine for migrants. Read LINKZ online or subscribe for a print copy once you arrive.
