Unfortunately CAB Language Connect lost its funding contract in a competitive tender situation, and despite our best efforts we have been unable to find replacement funding in the short time we had to do that. As a result the CABNZ National Board made the very sad decision that the Language Connect service will cease operation from 14 December. We are very proud of the excellent service that Language Connect has provided to so many clients and communities in its fifteen year history.
Many CABs have multi-lingual volunteers and access to additional multi-lingual support so you can still use the main CAB service by phoning us on 0800 367 222 or visiting your local CAB.
We are committed to ensuring that language is not a barrier for clients accessing the CAB service so will be looking at how we can continue to provide multi-lingual support for clients in the future.
