WHAT IS GATHER MY CREW
We all face challenging times.
Illness, an accident, a premature baby, a dying parent or a natural disaster can turn life upside down and make it impossible to manage all of the daily tasks that allow normal life to go on.
Gather My Crew is a way to get the help you need when going through tough times.
The online rostering tool allows you to ‘Gather’ (or ask for) the practical help you need from your ‘Crew Members’ (friends, family, neighbours and colleagues) and lets your ‘Crew’ decide when and how they will help.
Gather My Crew is free and easy to use.

GETTING THE PRACTICAL HELP YOU NEED
Gather My Crew works by directly linking people in need to their own network of ‘helpers’ in an easy and coordinated way through an online tool. This tool pivots around a list of ‘needs’. This list identifies a range of practical tasks that are part of daily living.
COORDINATING HELP FROM FRIENDS AND FAMILY
Once a Gatherer has used the list to identify their needs, they then invite their ‘Crew’ to choose which tasks they wish to help with. These tasks are recorded and coordinated through a central calendar that is monitored by the Gatherer.
Gather My Crew can be used to coordinate a team of helpers to assist with things like:
Make school lunchboxes
Transport kids to school
Walk the dog
WE ARE A REGISTERED CHARITY
Gather My Crew is a registered charity. We provide our community building tools to the public for free. You do not need to pay to use our rostering tool – and nor will your wonderful Crew Members.
HOW CREW MEMBERS HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE
ENABLING NORMAL LIFE TO GO ON
We all go through tough times in life, and they can be overwhelming.
Gather My Crew makes it possible for normal life to go on.
You can use Gather My Crew to coordinate a team of helpers to assist around the home, with medical appointments, with daily chores, with young children, with transport or to arrange an outing.
