Get in touch
Have questions or feedback? We would love to hear from you.
When life gets tough, community gets you through.
We’re an Australian charity and movement that exist to help people to help each other. We know that human connection, and providing, or receiving, the right help at the right time can make all the difference.
Let’s make that happen.
Why we exist
Let’s make things easier
We exist to support people going through tough times by connecting them with their friends, family, and community. Our aim is to reduce the isolation and overwhelm that often come with challenging life events such as illness, disability, or family crisis.
We provide a free app that enables people to request, and coordinate, specific help from their network.
Our resources also support people in asking for help and offering help in a more effective way. We understand that it can be challenging to ask for help, and many people struggle with knowing how to offer assistance in a meaningful way. That’s why we provide tips, tools, and guidance to help people communicate their needs clearly, and to make offers of help that are specific and practical.
Our aim is to empower people to build stronger connections with their community, and to feel confident in both asking for and offering help.
Through any challenge life brings, we want you to feel loved and supported.
The right help at the right time
The Gather My Crew app is free to download Australia-wide and bridges the gap between people who need help and their community of friends and family who want to support.
You can coordinate support for yourself, or ask a trusted person to do this for you. Start by downloading the app.
Next, think of anyone who might want to help and invite them to join your crew.
To ask for help, you create a task, and the crew accept which tasks they can do. The app supports you to identify tasks you might need help with.
The app also has a chat function so you can keep your crew in the loop.
Guidance that helps people to help people
Our Help Literacy Hub provides guidance and new perspectives on how to offer and ask for help.
Combining clinical expertise and real life stories, our Help Literacy Hub delivers new and different ways to offer or ask for support.
What we do
Turn compassion into practical help
When we hear about others going through a tough time, it is human nature to want to help in some way.
We may say ‘let me know what I can do’ – but rarely is that compassion turned into practical help.
That is where Gather My Crew comes in.
Our purpose-built app turns offers of ‘let me know what I can do’ into support that will make a difference.
It is a simple and convenient way to organise transport, meals, help with the kids, social visits or grocery shopping.
