The NDIS management software that will revolutionise how people will use the NDIS
Right now, the NDIS is rolling out across Queensland and will be operating state-wide by July 2019. If you’re moving from current support into the NDIS or applying for the first time, you’ll benefit from having First2Care in your pocket.
It’s finally here! And we’re excited to see the difference it’s going to make to people’s lives.
We’ve worked hard to get everything right by involving different people with disabilities and their families, carers and service providers to build an app that addresses the needs of everyone in the sector.
You want to know more, but we understand you don’t just want to hear us bang on about it, you want to read some real-life First2Care reviews. Here’s what some of our community network and beta testers had to say about the app.
