A new way to volunteer

Our technology connects people who need a bit of help with nearby residents who are willing and able to lend a hand. Volunteers work together in local ‘crews’ so that no one has to go it alone.

How it works

  • ‘Crew leads’ register a support crew

    Local community groups can register and manage a ‘support crew’ for their local area. The person who sets up the crew (Crew Lead) must undergo an interview and police check. Once approved, the Crew Lead can invite other local residents to join in and help out.

  • Referrers identify people in need

    Professionals working with those in need (GP, aged care, maternal health, social worker) can refer clients to Connect. A Referrer can search the Support Crew directory to find local crews who can lend their client a hand. The Referrer simply connects the client (with their consent) to the Support Crew via the website.

  • Crew members lend a hand

    Anyone who wants to lend a hand in their community can join a Support Crew. Crew Members are notified when people in their area need something done. There are no set shifts or lock in commitments, you only commit to the tasks you are able to do.

Our approach to safety

Online training

Each activity that can be carried out by a support crew has its own online training module. All crew members must complete the relevant training before their online account is activated.

Safety Checks

All Crew Leads must be part of an organisation (eg. Lions Club, sporting club, faith group, Men’s Shed). Crew Leads undergo an interview and police check arranged by Gather My Crew.

Insurance

Crew Members are insured for accident and personal injury when lending a hand with Connect. Crews are auspiced under Gather My Crew’s public liability and volunteer insurance.

Conduct

All Crew Members must accept our Code of Conduct before engaging with Connect. Gather My Crew will remove any Support Crews or Crew Members who do not adhere to our Code.

Support

Gather My Crew is here to support you every step of the way. If you have any questions about technology, supporting others, starting a crew, or anything in between, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

I am so excited about Connect. It means that we can ‘fill the gaps’ for those people we are not able to help. It is also a great way to just do something for your community without the ‘full on’ commitment of other volunteering.

Volunteering is all about doing things that you enjoy while also helping others. There is something for everyone with Connect… cooking, gardening and having a chat.

Covid has shown us that there are many people out there who are needing the support of their community. Connect with Gather My Crew is a new way to reach them and it means that no one needs to fall through the gaps.

I have had people come up to me who would never have volunteered before… but who are happy to help out with Connect. You can just lend a hand, whenever you can.

Connect with Gather My Crew is proudly supported by…
