Language support

Equal access to information

The NSW Ageing and Disability Commissioner wants to ensure no-one is disadvantaged because they do not speak English or have difficulty speaking English or because of their cultural or religious background.

We have provided translated information to help you learn more about us and our services in the following languages:

Interpreter and translation services

The NSW Ageing and Disability Commissioner has an obligation to provide qualified and trained interpreters when conducting interviews, discussing complex matters, or when dealing with sensitive issues.

  • In most cases, family and friends cannot act as interpreters but can stay during an interview or meeting to provide support
  • Family and friends can only act as an interpreter if staff cannot obtain a qualified telephone or on site interpreter.

If you need help because English is not your first language, use the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) on 131 450. The service covers more than 150 languages. There is no charge for the service
