I registered about two weeks ago with Mable as a support worker and carer. Within two days I was contacted by two clients’ families and am now supporting both on a daily basis. Both are lovely clients and I am very happy with my work as well as how Mable has set up the platform. Time sheets and all communication works well. Payments are prompt, too!

Mable is a fantastic way to connect people with supports. Individuals can match their needs and wants to the staff of their choice, using the Mable online platform, and chat with staff members to learn more about what they can offer. Mable is a great way to support people to enhance their capacity and increase their ability to make choices in their life. People on Mable can connect supports to their community or home environment and build skills throughout their journey.

As a support worker working from the Mable platform, I find it very easy to connect with clients. I have eleven current long-term clients who all find the platform efficient – Mable gives everyone choice. As a case manager for long-term clients, Mable has given me the choice to select support workers that would best suit my client’s needs and it enables me to contact and meet with workers before agreeing to their contract. The Mable platform is very easy to use.
