WHAT IS GATHER MY CREW
Gather My Crew is a way to get the help needed to get through tough times.
Illness, an accident, a premature baby, a dying parent or an emergency (such as a house fire, bushfire or flood) can turn life upside down.
The online rostering tool allows people to ‘Gather’ (or ask for) the practical help needed from ‘Crew Members’ (friends, family, neighbours and colleagues) and lets the ‘Crew’ decide when and how they can help.
Gather My Crew is free and easy to use.
Choose the tasks you

GETTING THE PRACTICAL HELP YOU NEED
Gather My Crew works by linking people in need to their own network of ‘helpers’ in an easy and coordinated way.
COORDINATING HELP FROM FRIENDS AND FAMILY
A Gatherer uses a list of ‘needs’ to select the help required. Then they invite their ‘Crew’ to choose which ‘needs’ they can help with. This is all recorded and coordinated through a central calendar.
Gather My Crew can be used to assist with things like:
Make school lunchboxes
Transport kids to school
Walk the dog
WE ARE A REGISTERED CHARITY

HOW CREW MEMBERS HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE
ENABLING NORMAL LIFE TO GO ON
Gather My Crew makes it possible for normal life to go on.
It can be used to coordinate helpers to assist around the home, with medical appointments, with daily chores, with young children, with transport or to arrange an outing.
