On June 20, 2023, Whimble announced a partnership with RBC Bluesfest, which will see them offer on-site personal care attendants for people with disabilities.
Personal care attendants will be onsite for the duration of the festival and will be available to assist with typical activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathroom breaks, eating or drinking, etc.
TO REQUEST ASSISTANCE ONSITE DURING FESTIVAL HOURS:
Please alert a Whimble staff member or A-Team volunteer nearby, or contact the Supervisor onsite at 1-855-542-6082
“Whimble was founded on the premise that people with physical disabilities should be able to live life on their own terms, without having to worry about how and when they can access personal care assistance,” says Emma Brown, founder of Whimble. “We are thrilled to partner with Ottawa’s RBC Bluesfest, whose like-minded values recognize the importance of building a truly inclusive experience for all festival-goers this summer.”
Thank you, Emma and the Whimble Team!
