Event description

Description

The Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health (CEH) has been contracted by the Department of Health and Human Services to support the rollout of the NDIS in Victoria. More specifically, we are supporting disability services to work with people from CALD communities in ways that are culturally sensitive.


We at CEH consider interpreters an essential part of service delivery to CALD communities. We want to support interpreters’ understanding of the NDIS and ability to interpret complex concepts that are specific to it.
This free, two-hour workshop will take participants through NDIS language and concepts and give them the opportunity to translate these into their own language in a way that they feel is most accurate. We will also discuss cultural understandings of disability.


Participants will leave with a glossary of NDIS and disability terminology, a ‘Fact Sheet for interpreters’ and NDIS information outlining the key stages of the NDIS process.
