SETSCoP facilitates a CEO Forum to provide a platform for settlement organisations’ executive management to come together to address strategic issues for the settlement sector. Two steering groups have been established to progress the work of the CEO Forum and drive outcomes for identified areas of focus which include mapping the social and economic impact of settlement, in addition to enhancing the settlement sector and workforce sustainability.
