The Adventure Crew

 

Rob and Heidi Mercer are the team behind Adventurebilities. Rob is our Adventure Director who assists in developing the programs, drives the bus, and leads the team on most outings, as well as providing care for our adventurers. He also liaises with primary care givers to ensure that all of our adventurers goals are met. Heidi is our Communications Director and Event Manager. She loves paperwork and compliance and will help you navigate all things NDIS. While the team are on an adventure, Heidi will be running the show back at Adventurebilities HQ.

The rest of the adventure crew are highly experienced and we have picked the best of the best in the Bendigo area. All carers have a minimum qualification of Cert IV in Disability or equivalent experience, are policed checked and have a Working With Children Card. Our staff and volunteers have extensive experience and are matched to group activities with careful consideration.

All Adventurebilities team members have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 with their 3rd booster.

We would love to meet you, so get in touch and let’s chat.

Rob is sports mad and will talk to you for hours about any sport of your choosing, especially if it’s about his beloved Magpies.
