It is a brave and powerful experience to share your personal experiences and provide advice to others. We hope you enjoy the Our Experiences page, and you and the YourCrew community find it meaningful, inspiring and impactful. But first, we have some rules.
Who likes rules? Not us. But contributing to ‘Our Experiences’ means we need to be rock-solid when it comes to trust. The YourCrew app is considered a 100% safe place, and that’s why we ask all members to treat everyone else in the YourCrew community with respect, kindness and compassion.
The ‘intended purpose’ of the ‘Our Experiences’ page is to share your stories to help others by sharing your experience, getting some help/advice yourself, or sharing a good story. It is important to note that before content is displayed, it will need to go through our monitoring process to ensure your content fits within our rules below. This process does not happen 24/7, and it is not in real-time. So, if you need urgent help right now, this is not the place to ask for it. YourCrew is not a crisis or a counselling service. Please contact Kids Helpline, Lifeline or 000.
