Coordinate help with the Gather My Crew app

Our app has made it easy for thousands of Australians to ask for and coordinate help during tough times. 

Life can be hard sometimes

Illness, accident, death, injury, and relationship breakdown are just some of the things that can throw normal life into chaos. 

These are the times we all need a little help.

Our free tools and resources step you through the process of building a support crew to provide meaningful support during these tough times.


The right help at the right time makes all the difference

We know that asking for help can be difficult – and knowing what help to provide to someone can also be a challenge. 

By coordinating friends and family, our app can help turn offers of “let me know how I can help” into the support that is really needed. 

Join the thousands of Australians who have used the Gather My Crew app to coordinate help.

Getting started

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.

Create tasks

To ask for help, create a task. Easily choose a commonly requested task from your Help List. Or write your own.

Shared calendar

The description, date and time of your tasks will be added to the shared calendar and published task list.

In-app messaging

In-app messaging

You can use in-app messages to send updates, upload photos and share materials for specific tasks, such as shopping lists or recipes.

“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”
