Ensuring equal access to our services
Many people in our community do not speak English or have a very limited understanding of the language. To make sure everyone can access our services we offer free interpreters.
TIS National delivers this free service on behalf of the Australian Government and offers access to over 3,000 interpreters in over 160 different languages.
