We offer loans for individuals and organisations to purchase or build Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), and can provide flexible loan terms to suit the project need and individual’s personal financial position. Read about impact finance.

Accessibility tool for online access

For anyone who has difficulty typing, moving a mouse or reading a web page, we recommend using an assistive technology like eSSENTIAL Accessibility.

You can download eSSENTIAL Accessibility for free. This software provides a variety of accessibility features like keyboard and mouse replacements to help make the web accessible. 

It can be used on a standard PC by anyone with dexterity limitations.

If you’re deaf or find it hard to hear or speak on the phone, you can contact us through the National Relay Service.

Simply become a registered user of the service, then dial 133 677 and ask for 132 888.

Interpreter service

Our interpreter service can help if you prefer to speak a language other than English. If our interpreters are helping other customers when you call, we can arrange a call back for you.

Our branches

Use our branch locator to find an accessible branch near you.

If you need an AUSLAN interpreter, we can arrange this before your arrival. Please get in touch to let us know.

Bank Australia ATMs are located outside a number of our branches and are audio-enabled via a headphone jack, and have a tactile dot on the 5 key.
