Meet the team

A dedicated and trained team of volunteers

The Heroes Academy team is a dedicated and trained team of volunteers who are passionate about inclusion and have a heart for these families in our community.

Through the network of the church and other community organisations, dozens of professionals including doctors, nurses, allied health workers, teachers, support workers and others, volunteer their time to Heroes Academy.  Our network of volunteers enables us to provide 1:1 care ratio for all children who attend Heroes Academy events.

Safety is of utmost importance and as such all our volunteers have been referenced checked, hold a current Working with Children’s Check, and have completed Child Safe Training.
