Get CPR friendly in 60 minutes

The Sargood Foundation has purchased a portable defibrillator for the use of the local community which is housed for public access at Sargood and is easily accessible to local residents.

At the Sargood open day join a short, but intensive course on how to use our new community defibrillator and deliver CPR. With the kind support of Collaroy Surf Life Saving Club you and your family will learn how to get CPR friendly, use Sargood’s portable defibrillator and how to keep someone who suffers a cardiac arrest alive!

The Sargood Foundation

For those of you who are new to the area or are not familiar with the building at the end of Beach Road, Sargood on Collaroy is a world first, state-of-the-art resort purpose built for people living with spinal cord injury, which was initiated, developed and partly funded by the Collaroy Community.

The Sargood Foundation is a DGR registered Charity which represents this community and together we own 25% of Sargood on Collaroy.

We hope you will join us on the afternoon of Sunday 27th October at either 2:00pm or 4:00pm to see behind the scenes of this amazing life changing place!

At Sargood, our objective is to promote genuine independence and integration in the lives of our guests, who all live with life changing spinal cord injury.

Guests are able to participate in activities such as surfing, kayaking, rock climbing, sailing, diving, golf, tennis, fishing, water skiing and cycling alongside more therapeutic activities including yoga, cooking, ceramics, gardening or even a trip to our local Farmers Markets.

These activities, many requiring specially adaptive equipment, help to build confidence, optimism and a realization of what is possible for those living with SCI.
