SETTLEMENT WORKERS IN SCHOOLS

In March 2010, the Settlement Workers in Schools Program was launched in London. The Program places Settlement Workers from community agencies in elementary and secondary schools that have high numbers of families new to Canada. It is a partnership between school boards and community agencies to support first year settlement needs of families new to Canada.

In London, the program is known as SWIS-London and is a partnership between LUSO Community Services, London Cross Cultural Learner Centre, South London Neighbourhood Resource Centre, The Thames Valley District School Board and London Catholic District School Board.

LUSO Community Services is responsible for the delivery and implementation of the program in Northeast London.
