Auslan interpreters

If you want to use community services and are deaf or have a hearing impairment, Latrobe Community Health Service can help you communicate clearly.

Interpreting services across Gippsland

An interpreter will translate English to Australian sign language, or Auslan, to help you communicate with a non-signing person, and vice versa.

You may need an interpreter for many reasons. This could include:

  • going to medical appointments
  • training courses
  • job interviews
  • meetings
  • attending a funeral.

This service is available across Gippsland.
