Aboriginal Interpreter Service
The Aboriginal Interpreter Service helps to alleviate the language barriers faced by Indigenous persons throughout the Northern Territory particularly in relation to health and legal issues.
The Service was established in April 2000 and maintains a register of Aboriginal interpreters and languages in the Northern Territory. It provides an Aboriginal Language Interpreter Service for government and non-government agencies that require on-site Aboriginal language interpreters.
For further information visit the Aboriginal Interpreter Service website.
At hospitals, Aboriginal Liaison Officers provide a range of culturally appropriate support services. These include interpreting, family meetings, assistance with Centrelink forms, banking and complaints. Assistance can be sought through hospital switchboards.
