Disability information and advisory services (DIAS)

Enable New Zealand has been providing disability information and advice since the 1990s. Anyone can contact us and our services are completely free.

Here are some ways you can find disability information and advice online or in person.


Firstport is a national website. It provides information on a range of topics relating to disabilities. From how to get an assessment for housing modifications, to details of support services in your local area. Firstport aims to be the one-stop shop for disability-related information.
