“The Champion Mentors’ team have been nothing short of amazing in their support of my 15-year-old, ASD diagnosed son. My son is extremely active and can exhibit very challenging behaviours at times. Champion Mentors have been able to get him out there in the community through various outdoor activities; working toward my son’s independence, while still being able to address these behaviours with a caring, professional and responsible approach. Their service has been invaluable for my son, myself and our family.”
“Champion Mentors is an inspiring team of support service providers for growing teens looking for a qualified and professional NDIS provider.
>We moved to the Northern Rivers several years ago with our son, to offer him a country lifestyle, closer to nature and beaches. With our immediate family living outside our region and many overseas, we were seeking a local trusted NDIS service provider, to help our son in his development to achieve his personal goals, interests in life, connection to community and also have heaps of fun on the way.. like his regular adventures kayaking and fishing with his mentors.
Champion Mentors truly live by their name… a team of mentors that are highly qualified to deliver a range of services, and as parents, we are always at ease knowing they have strict policies about health and safety. We highly recommend Duncan Timms and the team at Champion Mentors.”
“Duncan and his team have made an incredible difference to my brother’s life. They embraced his enthusiasm with NRL and arranged opportunities for him to meet his idols.
He continues to improve and develop his social skills, which would have been difficult without the help of Champion Mentors. We look forward to his future with your dedicated assistance and passion.”
“ My husband has early onset Alzheimer’s and really enjoys his weekly outing with Champion Mentors.
He loves to be active and needs to be outside exercising. However he is a wanderer and needs to be watched over while out walking. He goes on hikes and bush walks with Champion Mentors who provide safe and stimulating activities for him. He really benefits not only from the physical activity but also from the friendly caring company of the staff. He looks forward to his outings and is always happy when he returns from a hike.
“I have been working in partnership with Champion Mentors to support NDIS participants to improve their lives and achieve their goals. I have been impressed by the high standard of professionalism and care provided by Champion Mentors staff.
Courtney is a Champion Mentor who has worked with one of my NDIS clients, a school girl with autism, in the provision of high quality interventions to support my client to achieve goals at home, school and in the community. Courtney has supported my client to successfully manage challenging situations and has developed a positive working relationship with my client and her family. Her approach is encouraging, patient, understanding, focused and positive.
I have no hesitation in recommending the services provided by Courtney and Champion Mentors.”
“I’m so happy with the support I have been given concerning my son. He gets opportunities to do activities that I would not be able to do with him, plus an opportunity to chat to a good role model. All the mentors have been nothing but kind, empathetic and fun to boot. Keep up the great work!”
“Duncan and his team have been supportive and caring towards me. They listen to my interests and try their best to incorporate those into our outings.
Duncan has always been approachable and helpful. He is always there if I need someone to talk to and will offer to come and have a coffee and a chat when needed. I have definitely enjoyed the time I have spent with the Champion Mentors team.”
“Paramount Adventure Centre Burleigh Heads provides instruction and training to cover basic to advanced climbing skills and techniques. Our programs cater to the skill level and needs of each individual and build core strength and fitness as well as lifting self-confidence.
We enjoy a great relationship with Champion Mentors and their clients that they bring to our gym. We love seeing the smiles our facilities and the Champion Mentors Team bring to the faces of these young climbers. We always look forward to having the Champion Mentors Team and their clients in our gym.”
“Champion Mentors provide quality, engaged and inspiring mentoring (support work) to people with disabilities. When we were looking for a support worker for our son, we wanted to find someone who was a young, healthy and inspiring role model.
With Champion Mentors, we found a whole team of mentors that meet and exceed these criteria. We have found them caring, professional and dedicated to providing support work. We have had great experiences with mentors at the group days and are very fortunate to have mentor Jem as part of our weekly care network.
Our son has bonded very quickly with Jem, and we are so delighted to have him as a role model in our son’s life. Champion Mentors are easy to deal with and have made our first experience with support work absolutely smooth. We highly recommend them to other families clients in our gym.”
“My son Danny who is 14 has been going with Champion Mentors for about 2 months.
It takes a lot to get an emotional reaction from him, when he came home from his first outing, WHAT WAS IT LIKE? I asked.. He had a huge smile on his face, (Job well done).
Third time out (fishing trip) an even bigger smile, and stories about the big one (job very well done).
Thank you very much. Looking forward to many more outings.”
“I am the parent of two boys mentored by Duncan and the team. The boys love their outings and activities, and I am thrilled to have them supported by a team who model the great attributes of respect, health, humour and self confidence.
As the director of a local plan management and support coordination business I have seen this positive feedback repeated in clients and their families. The team particularly understand young adults who struggle with identity and disability, and this is a gap that has long been unfilled in the disability space.
I cannot recommend Champion Mentors highly enough.”
