The Office of the Public Guardian is committed to providing accessible services to Queenslanders from all cultural backgrounds. If you would like any of our publications explained in your language, please telephone the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS) on 13 14 50 to speak to an interpreter. Ask them to connect you to the Office of the Public Guardian. This is a free service provided by the Australian Federal Government's Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
