Who is the ‘Gatherer’?
This is the administrator. This person sets up and monitors the ‘crew’. It could be the person in need or someone who cares about them.
Gatherers need to:
Create the account
Select the help that is needed
Invite Crew Members
Monitor the account
The Gatherer will receive regular updates and alerts from Gather My Crew.
If you want to set up a Gather My Crew account for someone else, make sure you ask their permission first. It is essential that they are able to identify the help they need and who they want as Crew Members.
Who are the ‘Crew Members’?
The people who are providing the help. They could be family, friends, neighbours, colleagues, parents at school, people from your faith group and everything in between.
Crew Members MUST be invited by the Gatherer.
Invitations from the Gatherer contain a link to the ‘support crew’. Once an invitation is accepted, Crew Members can see the help needed and can select what they can do to help.
If you want to help but have not received an invitation, you could:
Tell them about Gather My Crew so they can create an account
Offer to set up an account for them (become a Gatherer)
