Arranging access for people with disabilities

If you have a disability, there are services that may be able to help you; before you go to court, to get to court and while you are at court.

    ​Infor​mation before going to court

    Some courts and tribunals may be able to provide information about going to court in large print, audio or braille format.

    The Deaf Society of NSW also has information about going to court, translated in Auslan. For more information, go to the Deaf Society NSW website.

    If you have a cognitive disability and are going to court, you may also find the video 'So you have to go to Court!' helpful. For more information, go to the Diversity Services web​site.   

    Services available for travelling to court

    If you have a disability, contact the court or tribunal you need to attend to find out about access options available to you.

    For more information, go to the access for people with disabilities section of the Local Courts website.

    Services available in court

    Some services may be available to make it easier for you to attend court. For example:

    • Infra-red hearing loop
    • Other support

    Infra-red hearing loop

    Courts can arrange for an infra-red hearing loop to be available on the day of a court hearing.

    If you are collecting an infra-red hearing loop, contact the court office a few days before you attend to confirm that it has been ordered.

    Other support

    You can download and fill in a Request for court assistance form from the Local Court website to let the court staff know what access you require and what support you intend bringing to a particular hearing. 

    For more information, go to the access for people with disabilities section of the Local Courts website.

    How to request assistance

    The NSW Department of Justice is committed to providing access to services for people with disabilities throughout the State and in all of its courts and tribunals. If you have a disability and are going to court, and need some h​elp you can contact your local court or Diversity Services.

    For more information, go to the Disability Access section of the Diversity Services website. ​
