It is thanks to our partners that we can provide our help technology and help literacy resources free to all Australians
Experiencing difficult times is part of being human, but we can make these times more manageable by helping each other.
We’re an Australian charity that exist to mobilise and strengthen community to support people in crisis. 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 want to make it easy to reach out for help and easy to provide the right help.
Whether you’re here because you need help, or because you want to help someone else, our help technology and help literacy resources provide you with the support and guidance you need.
The right help at the right time
The Gather My Crew app is free to download Australia-wide and can be used to ask for, and provide, meaningful support.
The person wanting help, or someone on their behalf, creates a network on the app and then invites people to join and become their support crew.
You then enter the tasks you want help with and the crew accept which tasks they can do.
The app has also chat functions 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 user stories, our Help Literacy Hub delivers new and different ways to offer or ask for support and motivational stories from people just like you.
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.
Not sure if this is right for you? Check out our help literacy resources to learn about other ways you can help.
