A support worker’s guide to Mable
Mable Last Minute: Helps build your small business
Clients may often need last-minute support, especially around the holidays that tend to be a bit unpredictable. Thanks to Mable’s award-winning initiative, Mable Last Minute, they can find support with as little as 4 hours’ notice.
What is Mable Last Minute?
It could be that a client’s regular support worker became unavailable for a shift or the they may have been invited to a last-minute event or had a medical appointment brought forward. Very simply, Mable Last Minute enables clients to book Independent Support Workers for a session 4-48 hours away.
What are the benefits for you?
For independent support workers, Mable Last Minute could represent an opportunity to fill gaps in availability and a way of meeting and working with new clients. Sometimes, Last Minute jobs are pure and simple once-offs, but they can also result in gaining a new, ongoing client.
As such, Mable Last Minute is a great way to boost your small business.
