-    make sure you are familiar with the local transport system
-    help you settle into life in Australia by helping with day-to-day matters such as opening a bank account and settling into school
-    complete monthly student contact reports
-    make after-hours and weekend contact with you and your homestay family
-    support you after-hours if you need an emergency telephone contact
-     provide guidance and help you access professional counselling if you need it
