Gather My Crew

During tough times (such as illness, accident, sudden death, divorce, drought, natural disaster) there can be a breakdown between those in need and the people in their network who are able to ‘lend a hand’. The Gather My Crew user-friendly and free rostering tool enables people in need to (i) pre-emptively identify current and future needs, actively ask for help and coordinate willing supporters to meet these needs.

Gather My Crew directly supports the creation of stronger support networks by connecting those in need with those who have something they can give. This project supports the organisation to run a 11-month education and information program in over 12 regional areas including Geelong, Ballarat, Colac and Hamilton.
