Being accessible through the National Relay Service will help you:
- retain existing customers or clients who are deaf, or have a hearing or speech impairment
- attract new customers or clients from a group of Australians that is rapidly growing as the population ages
- meet your legislative obligations to provide equality of access to people with disability
- be at the forefront of Australia’s diversity, access and disability best practice
- strengthen your customer service.
More and more businesses, government departments and other organisations are making sure that those Australians who are deaf or have hearing or speech impairments can access their organisation's products and services using the National Relay Service.
We call this becoming Relay Service friendly.
- Who in your organisation needs to know about the National Relay Service?
- Do you have staff with hearing or speech impairments? If you have a separate TTY line, is it still required?
