THE Sargood Foundation’s vision is that people affected by spinal CORD injury are provided with opportunities to live life to the fullest
Sargood on Collaroy is a world-first! Purpose-built and completely accessible, it’s designed for people living with spinal cord injury as a place to refresh, learn and connect.
From 1 July 2019 the Sargood Foundation will be providing travel assistance grants of up to $500 to prospective guests who require financial assistance to travel to and from Sargood on Collaroy.
The recipients of the grants will be selected from applicants at the discretion of the Sargood Foundation.
Applications can be made via the booking form on the Sargood on Collaroy website from early July 2019.
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.
