The Argo Trust provides a residential and vocational service to six men and women who have profound intellectual and physical disabilities.
Providing boutique care since 1995, The Argo Trusts primary focus is to offer meaningful community participation opportunities and the support and encouragement needed to live a full and fun life.
The essential role of families in the establishment and ongoing success of the organisation was evident. I was particularly inspired with how the organisation appeared to stand up to funding bodies to say “no, that requirement is not meaningful and appropriate for us” and stand strong to have their voices heard. Images of the community of Argo provided evidence of respect, and the voices of staff and families carried love.
