Help from friends and family can make all the difference
During this challenging time, friends, family and neighbours play an important supportive role.
Whether providing essential help such as meals, groceries or medications, emotional support such as regular phone calls, messages or through online games, or special treats such as cookies, cheese or chocolate, social support is a strong predictor of coping through isolation.
Make sure you and your community are supported during this time.
Use our simple app to identify and coordinate all of the help needed over the coming week/s so friends and family can provide meaningful support.
HOW THE APP WORKS
The right help at the right time makes all the difference
Feeling overwhelmed is a common reaction to hardship. But you don’t have to do it alone. You can join the 80% of users who enlist the help of a family member or close friend to be their App Captain.
Gather your Crew
Invite people to join your Crew. Think of friends, family and anyone who’s offered to help. Choose people from your phone contacts to send an SMS invite.
Identify help opportunities
When you’re overwhelmed, it’s often hard to suggest ways others can help. Our handy 1 minute questionnaire can help. We’ll use your answers to build a list of common help requests, outlined in your Help List.
The description, date and time of your tasks will be added to the shared calendar and published task list.
To ask for help, create a task. Easily choose a commonly requested task from your Help List. Or write your own.
“Wednesday is my day off. So I’d be more than happy to walk the dog.”
“I’ll take Anna’s kids with mine to school. Easy since they’re so close by”
Many hands make light work
Gather My Crew has empowered thousands of people needing extra help and those eager to lend a hand. Working together, they provide ongoing and sustained support that meets the needs of people they care about.

Frequently asked questions
Common questions about our technology
Can I share the admin duties?
Yes. You can allocate as many people to be administrators as you wish. These people can add and delete tasks, invite Crew Members, send messages and edit details. To give a Crew Member admin rights, you need to click on the name of the person in your Crew and allocate them admin rights within their details.
