We are also very proud to support Sargood as our official charity.
Sargood will be a world-class, residential learning centre on beautiful Collaroy beach.
Traditional spinal cord injury rehabilitation focuses on your physical health.
Sargood focuses on the whole of life.
It equips you with the skills and confidence you need for new challenges.
Living independently. Getting a job. Managing relationships. Taking part in the community.
Taking control of your life.
What Makes Sargood Unique
People living with spinal cord injury are part of the team who are creating Sargood.
Their experience and expertise is helping to forge a real path to independence.
Many people with spinal cord injuries return to hospital because key support services aren’t available, or they haven’t gained all the skills and confidence they need to live independently.
Sargood will offer:
- Individual apartments that are flexible and state of the art
- An apartment where your family can stay with you
- On-site learning to help you set and achieve your goals
- An uplifting, resort-like environment
- A local community working toward an accessible, all inclusive Collaroy
- On-site learning for attendant carers and family
Who can stay at Sargood?
Sargood is for people who have had a spinal cord injury.
