Multicultural Action Plan

We are required to report against the Queensland Government’s Multicultural Action Plan in compliance with the Multicultural Recognition Act 2016.

Legal Aid Queensland supports and contributes to the Multicultural Action Plan by:

  • delivering focused community legal education (CLE) sessions to culturally diverse communities
  • distributing translated legal information to culturally diverse communities
  • using free interpreter services for clients in line with the state government’s Language Services Policy
  • providing a fortnightly family law advice clinic at the Refugee and Immigration Legal Service (RAILS)  in Brisbane
  • promoting our website, which includes a built-in screen reader and translation tool called ‘Browsealoud’, that can translate content into 90 languages.

Listening to and translating content using Browsealoud

You can now listen to, or translate content on our website using Browsealoud. This tool will read aloud content on a page (in English), and can also be used to translate the same content into a number of different languages that can then be read aloud.
