Integration and settlement support

This page provides information about integration and settlement support in the City of Stirling.

Youth Settlement Service

In partnership with Youth Futures WA, the City of Stirling has established the Youth Settlement Service to help support young migrants to settle into their community.

The program offers one-to-one support for information and advice on issues such as relationships, drug and alcohol use, sexual health and mental health.

The Department of Social Services (DSS) funds this service, which is available to young people between the ages of 12 and 25, who have immigrated to Australia in the past five years. Eligible participants will have the opportunity to participate in free recreational, cultural and arts-based activities.

For more information, please phone our multicultural youth support and development worker on (08) 9205 7335 or visit the Youth Futures WA website.
