We are pleased to be hosting AQA as they run their Skills for Independence course here at Sargood!

This course will provide you with the essentials to progress through rehab, transition back home or adjust to a change in circumstances.

Developed and led by people with lived experience, Skills for Independence will be held at the specialist SCI resort Sargood on Collaroy, located in northern Sydney, NSW.


When: 9 – 13 May
