Bringing to life the vision of the Collaroy Community Group to provide a place of healing, Sargood on Collaroy has evolved as a joint initiative between the Sargood Foundation and Royal Rehab, with support from icare.
Built on land donated by Frederick George Sargood in 1918, the purpose-built resort is the site of a rich history of care and healing, with the land previously home to an extension of the Royal Alexandra Hospital for Children used for nursing children with polio and tuberculosis back to health. The need for this facility eventually ceased and the site was declared “surplus to requirements”.
Luxury accessible accommodation
The concept of a luxury accessible accommodation facility was developed with the aim to promote social integration, activity and support for people with spinal cord injury. With support from icare, the Sargood Foundation acquired the site for what was to become Sargood on Collaroy, and soon after partnered with Royal Rehab, a leading spinal cord injury rehabilitation service in NSW, to operate the centre.
Sargood on Collaroy will provide people with spinal injuries and their families a unique experience and the opportunity to develop vocational skills, health, well being and education.
