About NABS

NABS is the National Auslan Interpreter Booking and Payment Service.

NABS provides interpreters for Deaf, Deafblind and hard of hearing people who use sign language and would like an interpreter for private health care appointments.

NABS is free to people who are not eligible for NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme).

Sign language services to Deaf Indigenous people are provided for both public and private health care appointments.


Services include:

  • Face to face interpreting (onsite)

  • Video Remote Interpreting (online)


We are a registered NDIS service provider since 2013 and can assist NDIS participants with all their sign language interpreting needs which includes health care and other interpreting needs.

For further information on NABS and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), visit our NDIS page.


Interpreters can be for Deaf adults and Deaf children.

  • Deaf parents with hearing children 

  • Deaf children with hearing adults (click here to see NABS Duty of Care)
