The Helpdesk can assist with:

  • questions, requests and general enquiries about the NRS and Accesshub
  • information about different relay call options
  • getting you started making calls through the NRS
  • advice on upcoming improvements to the NRS
  • assistance for CapTel users to transition to another call option
  • information for people supporting NRS users
  • information for organisations that connect with NRS users
  • your feedback about the NRS and Accesshub, including complaints.

If you experience issues with the NRS it’s really important you let the Helpdesk know so the issue can be investigated and fixed as soon as possible.

The Helpdesk is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm (Eastern Standard Time, excluding national public holidays).
