Automatic language translation
Our website uses an automatic service to translate our content into different languages. These translations should be used as a guide only. See our Accessibility page for further information.
Ensuring anyone who speaks a language other than English can access information in their language is an important component to the work of the NSW Ageing and Disability Commission.
We have information to help you learn more about us and our service in the following languages:
The NSW Ageing and Disability Commission 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 (if appropriate).
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.

We acknowledge Aboriginal people as the First Nations Peoples of NSW and pay our respects to Elders past, present, and future.
Informed by lessons of the past, the Ageing and Disability Commission is improving how we work with Aboriginal people and communities. We listen and learn from the knowledge, strength and resilience of Stolen Generations Survivors, Aboriginal Elders and Aboriginal communities.
You can access our apology to the Stolen Generations.
