Support Crew is making it easy to get a hand when you or your whānau face a life challenge or a tough time.
What is Support Crew?
Support Crew is a free online support platform that helps you to coordinate all those offers of help from family and friends.
New Zealanders are quick to offer help during challenging life events, whether it is a cancer diagnosis, an accident, or the loss of a loved one.
But this help might arrive all at once; include multiple lasagnas and fish pies, and involve a lot of phone calls and emails to coordinate.
Support Crew makes it easy to ask for the help you really need, when you need it – and shows your loved ones exactly how they can help.
How Support Crew works
Create a private support page
Anyone can set up a private Support Page. It’s safe, secure, fast and free.
You can ask a loved one to set-up and manage a Support Page for you. They will likely be the ones keeping an eye on you anyway and will now have one place to manage all those offers to help, so it’s not all on them.
Invite your crew
Invite friends and family from here or overseas to connect on your Support Page.
Say what you need
You can use our templates to request help with anything from transport to meals to child-care.
This can also be the place to share news, accept offers to help and manage visitors. Save time by easily communicating in one place.
Receive help from afar
Our Give Store allows friends and family to organise meals, cleaning vouchers, fuel vouchers, fruit and vege boxes, care packages etc no matter where in the world they live and without needing to live nearby.
