Settlement At Work is more than a website: Settlement At Work is a knowledge hub bringing together practitioners and experts to collaborate, connect, share and build capacity. At this inaugural event, we are forming the Settlement At Work Hub Group to present what makes us tick and what we're developing behind the scenes, as well as finding out from you how we can better support you in your work in the settlement sector.
