Staying Connected in the NT
Your support of The Deaf Lottery means we can continue to innovate our service delivery to ensure all Deaf Australians stay connected.
We recently attended the All Abilities Expo in Darwin, where, at the time, no Auslan interpreters were present in the Northen Territory.
Thinking quickly, our NT Service Access and Information Facilitator Debbie Kennewell liaised with our interpreting service Auslan Connections to organise a virtual interpreter to appear with her on an iPad!
Today, we’re working with the NT Government to deliver a live, full-time interpreter in the region, as well as a training pathway for future Auslan interperers, ensuring connections remain for the NT Deaf community.
Your support of The Deaf Lottery continues to keep these connections alive. Purchase Deaf Lottery tickets HERE.
