Missed AbilityFest this year? Mable client and vlogger Lian was there to capture all the action

Care Workers, Community, Disability May 16, 2019

Every day, hundreds of new connections are made on Mable. One of these is Mable client and vlogger Lian and her independent support worker Sarah. Winners of our competition to win tickets to AbilityFest, they recently got ‘glitter-fied’ and documented their day at Australia’s first fully-inclusive music festival.

For Lian, support wasn’t just about having someone who could help with personal support and getting to and from the festival. She needed someone with a particular skill set.

A self-styled ‘festival-hopping bunny’ and already one of Lian’s trusted support team, Lian knew Sarah would be up for the job.

“I wanted to be a unicorn and Sarah had the magic to help me with that.”

If you weren’t able to attend yourself, you can watch Lian’s vlog on her channel, Life with Lian to check out the highlights from the day, including meeting Kim Churchill, Dylan Alcott’s special appearance and the super-charged festival Auslan interpreters.
