Wyndham City is a culturally rich community and as the fastest growing municipality in Victoria, Wyndham is increasingly becoming a more culturally and linguistically diverse community, with 30 per cent of residents speaking a language other than English at home, and over 100 languages other than English spoken by residents of Wyndham.
The pre-recorded information covers all essential services provided by Wyndham City such as Maternal and Child Health, Kindergarten Services, Aged and Disability, Rates, Infringements and Animal Registration, Waste and Recycling, Town Planning and Building Permits and Services.
Residents can also be automatically connected to an interpreter if required. The model is already being used in many other local governments in Victoria.
