Gather My Crew thanks outgoing Board Chair Ben Davidson for his exceptional contributions.

Gather My Crew extends its heartfelt gratitude to Ben Davidson for his outstanding service as Board Chair. As a partner at Corrs Chambers Westgarth law firm, Ben played an instrumental role in transforming Gather My Crew from an idea into reality, supporting people in need by organising community-based care and support networks. Ben’s legal experience during start-up ensured the necessary legal and governance frameworks were firmly established.

Under Ben’s leadership, Gather My Crew has made a profound impact, reaching over 50,000 people and facilitating more than 300,000 hours of volunteer assistance from personal connections. His dedication and expertise have been pivotal in enabling the organisation to build strong community support networks, offering practical help to those in need.

Quote from Founder, Dr. Susan Palmer: “Ben’s leadership and legal expertise have been fundamental to the success of Gather My Crew. His unwavering commitment to our mission has helped us create a robust platform that continues to make a significant difference in the lives of thousands. We are deeply grateful for his contributions and proud of all that we have achieved together.” – Dr. Susan Palmer, Founder of Gather My Crew

Quote from Incoming Chairperson, Kate Siebert: “I am honoured to follow in Ben’s footsteps and continue this important work. Ben’s work has laid a strong foundation for Gather My Crew, and I am committed to building on this to further our impact and reach. We are incredibly thankful for Ben’s dedication and look forward to his continued support as a valued member of our community.” – Kate Siebert, Incoming Chairperson of Gather My Crew

As Ben Davidson steps down from his role, Gather My Crew looks forward to continuing to create a society where everyone can rely on a well-coordinated network of support during times of personal crisis, ensuring no one faces hardship alone.
