Understanding the NDIS and Caring Clothing products
NDIS participants and carers are not charged for language interpreting services.
The interpreters’ role is to interpret spoken words only. This means they are unable to give you advice about the NDIS and Caring Clothing products.
NDIS Planners, Early Childhood Early Intervention Services and Local Area Coordination Services can help you to get an interpreter.
Your NDIS Planner, Early Childhood Early Intervention Services, Local Area Coordination Services or Support Coordinator will book a certified interpreter for you.
You can bring a family member or friend who speaks English to your meeting, but the NDIS will also give you an interpreter.
Where possible, on-site interpreters will be booked to join your NDIS face-to-face meetings, while over the phone interpreter services will be used for short, simple communications.
The NDIS can provide a participant plan in your or your carers preferred language.
Using your NDIS Plan
Caring Clothing is responsible for offering you interpreter services to help you use the supports you have funded in your plan.
Your NDIS Provider or Support Coordinator will book a face-to-face or over the phone language support interpreter.
Language interpreting supports are not part of your NDIS plan.
You can ask Caring Clothing to help book a specific interpreter every time you meet with them, for example, if you want the same interpreter or prefer a specific gender.
Registered NDIS Providers, including Support Coordinators, can register with TIS National to allow NDIS participants and their carers access to NDIS funded interpreters.
