How It Works

Gather My Crew brings together the ‘two halves of the whole’…

Our technology acts as the ‘bridge’ between people in need of help and their community of willing helpers.

We make it easy to identify the help needed, invite people to lend a hand, and coordinate the offers of help in a shared calendar. Crews can be as small as five people or as large as 100.

The Gatherer selects the help needed from our list of common tasks

They invite friends and family to become Crew Members

Crew Members view the tasks and select the things they can help with

Gatherer

– the person requesting help

This could be the person in need or someone they trust.

The role of the Gatherer is 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.

Crew Members

– the people providing the help

Crew Members can ONLY join a Crew via an invitation sent from the account of the Gatherer.

Invitations contain the link to the relevant account. Once an invitation is activated, Crew Members can see all of the help that is requested and can select the ways they are able 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
  • Offer to be a Crew Member

Asking for help can be hard. We make it easier.

Gather My Crew has the power to turn offers of ‘let me know how I can help’ into the support that is really needed.

The benefits of using our technology include:

  • making it easy to reach out and ask for help
  • making it easy for friends or family to take on the role of Gatherer (or administrator)
  • ensuring friends and family know exactly how they can help
  • making it easy to coordinate large groups of support, for long periods of time
  • removing the need for excel spreadsheets, late night SMS and constant ring-arounds
  • making it easy for friends and family to provide help around their own commitments

 

You can use Gather My Crew to coordinate helpers to assist with tasks like:

  • Daily chores
  • Medical appointments
  • Jobs around the home
  • Transport
  • Young children
  • Arranging an outing
