Settlement Workers in Schools 

 

 About Us

 
 SWIS-London is a partnership between the LDCSB, TVDSB, Citizenship and Immigration Canada and the following agencies:
  • London Cross Cultural Learner Centre (LCCLC)
  • London Urban Services Organization (LUSO) Centre Inc.
  • South London Neighbourhood Resource Centre
 
Settlement workers are employed by the community agencies and work full time in our schools with newcomer families. They work from “base” schools to support newcomer families by:
  • Proactively contact newcomer families
  • Providing resources to assist with housing, food, banking, education, etc.
  • Making referrals to specialized resources
  • Providing orientation about settlement needs of newcomers for school staff
 
Settlement workers assist newcomer families and secondary students with  settlement needs.  They work collaboratively with school staff as part of the welcoming team for newcomer families and support increased parent engagement in our schools.
 

SWIS Organization - LDCSB Schools

 
The SWIS LDCSB School Service Model is within a geographic cluster of schools with additional itinerant service to schools as needed. The city of London has been divided up into 3 geographic cluster areas according to settlement patterns of newcomers. Home base school sites have been identified to house settlement workers most of the time while other schools will receive service 1-2 days per week and some schools may require itinerant service.
