Sargood on Collaroy aims to promote social integration, activity and support for people with a spinal cord injury whilst guests enjoy much needed refreshment and inspiration with their families. This holistic approach is to make people with a SCI happier, healthier, and prepared to tackle the next big thing, be it returning to school, study or work after their injury, or perhaps even starting a family.

The Sargood Foundation was delighted to welcome Their Excellencies, the Governor- General of the Commonwealth of Australia, General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove and Lady Cosgrove to Sargood on Collaroy on Tuesday 16 October, in advance of the Invictus Games.

In his role as Patron of Spinal Cord Injuries Australia, the Governor-General was keen to get an insight into what the resort has to offer those guests with a spinal cord injury.

The Governor-General and Lady Cosgrove were delighted to meet guests who were enjoying learning new skills such as scuba diving and benefiting from the specially adapted gym equipment, much of which has been donated via the Sargood Foundation.
