New Zealand disability gateway for information, services, and support

Our Firstport website is a reliable and trustworthy source for people seeking information on services and support they need to live everyday lives.

Enable New Zealand worked with the New Zealand Federation of Disability Information Centres to develop Firstport.

In a world where there is a plethora of information online, Firstport acts as a gateway, linking people to services they’re looking for. The name reflects a navigation theme: navigating the website, the jargon, the services available, the products in the marketplace, and where to go next.

It’s a first ‘port of call’ — a place to start.

Federation member centres publish news and events and can host their websites on Firstport. This enables visitors to the site to seamlessly access national, regional and local information.
