Non-English Speakers

There are a number of gambling support services that can provide specialised counselling to people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities or who would like to access help using a language other than English.

Some gambling services employ multi-lingual gambling counsellors from various culturally and linguistically diverse communities, and can provide counselling services in languages other than English.

Telephone Interpreter Service (TIS) on 131 450 can enlist the help of an interpreter to call the Helpline in your state. The interpreter can access information from gambling help or be on the phone with you so you can begin the counselling process with the counsellor.

Alternatively, call the Helpline on 1800 858 858 and ask the counsellor to organise an interpreter through the Telephone Interpreter Service.

Help services aim to provide support, information and referral to all clients in a culturally sensitive manner.
