Queensland Health Interpreter Service for funded non-government organisations
Interpreter service for funded NGOs
Queensland Health recognises the importance for funded non-government organisations (NGOs) to have access to interpreter services to meet the language and communication needs of clients from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.
Queensland Health Multicultural Services has implemented arrangements for funded NGOs to access departmentally funded interpreter services.
This means an interpreter will be provided at no charge to assist you with your client when your organisation requests and books an interpreter through the Queensland Health Interpreter Service for Queensland Health funded NGOs.
|For organisations funded through Queensland Department of Health
Funding and Contract Management Unit (formerly known at Community Services Unit)
|For organisations funded through Hospital and Health Services|
If you are unsure if your organisation is funded via the Funding and Contract Management Unit, please contact the Funding and Contract Management Unit on 3006 2815 or on NGO_int_service@health.qld.gov.au.
