Auslan interpreters can be free for Funerals

The NSW Deaf Society has advised that Auslan interpreters are their specialist area and are used when deaf people have a preferred method of communication using Auslan.

They have a list of interpreters available on their website https://deafsocietynsw.org.au/interpreting/interpreters

Often for weddings, or other celebrations, deaf people pay for the interpreter/captions through their NDIS package and they can book this online through our web-app for NDIS users. Or if they do not have NDIS, interpreters usually do this work pro-bono through ASLIA (the sign language interpreters association) as many interpreters give back to the community in this way. An email to ASLIA requesting the date, time, location, who is getting married etc.

For funerals, NDIS again covers this cost. If the deaf person does not have NDIS, the Deaf Society provides up to 3 hours worth of interpreting for free based on the circumstances. Anything exceeding this time is up to the deaf person to cover the costs.

NSW Deaf Society maintains a no fee interpreting policy for funerals where a deaf person is attending a funeral. For more information contact our Customer Service Officers at interpreting@deafsociety.com, (02) 8833 3611 or SMS 0427 891 774.
