Our Story

The Gather My Crew story began when personal experience collided with 20 years of clinical practice 

Gather My Crew was founded in 2017 by Dr Susan Palmer, a psychologist with many years’ experience supporting families going through crisis. But it was not until her friend needed help that the idea for Gather My Crew was first born. 

Her friend Rachel required back surgery and her recovery would involve six weeks of bed rest. Susan wanted to help keep life as normal as possible for Rachel and her family – and had a group of 30 wonderful people able to lend a hand. But is wasn’t long before the text messages, ring-arounds, spreadsheets and late-night phone calls became too time consuming and difficult to manage.

It was a ‘lightbulb’ moment and the beginning of Gather My Crew…

After talking with colleagues looking for an easy, ‘online help roster’ that would make coordinating all of this help a breeze, Susan was shocked to discover that nothing like it existed. 

Twelve months later, Gather My Crew was launched.

Created based on the expertise of people who had ‘been there, done that’, as well as the clinicians who supported them, Gather My Crew exists to make sure people going through a crisis get the right help, at the right time from their friends and family – without all of the stress that usually comes with coordinating help via traditional means.
