Services for people with disability

NCAT can provide services for people with disability upon request. These need to be organised ahead of time. 

Accessibility of venues

Most of our hearing venues are wheelchair accessible. Disabled parking is available in some locations. Contact us for specific information about accessing NCAT's hearing venues.  

We can arrange a telephone or video hearing if you cannot come to the NCAT hearing in person.

Deaf or hard of hearing

If you use Auslan to communicate, we can arrange and pay for an Auslan interpreter at your NCAT hearing. Find out about interpreters and translator services

Do you find it hard to hear or use a hearing aid? Contact us so we can arrange an assistive listening device or hearing loop for your NCAT hearing. 

You can contact NCAT through the National Relay Service if you are d/Deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech communication difficulty.

Blind and low vision

We can provide our forms and publications in alternative formats. Please email your request to the NCAT Communications Team.

Easy Read

NCAT has a range of Easy Read fact sheets for people with cognitive disability. 

Augmentative and Alternative Communication

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is an acceptable method of communication at NCAT. People who use AAC are encouraged to bring their devices or books to the hearing. 

Contact us if you are going to use AAC so we can allow more time for your hearing.
