Laura Fergusson Trust Incorporated began its life in 1967, when a progressive group of people, led by Lady Laura Fergusson, wife of the then Governor General, Sir Bernard Fergusson and Lady Mary Caughey became concerned at the lack of appropriate residential facilities for disabled people. They chose actions over words and began the task of providing a solution to the residential problems of the disabled.

Mary Caughey and Laura Fergusson enlisted the help of a handful of other concerned men and women and began the significant task of establishing a facility which would address the accommodation needs of young disabled people. This led to the formation of a charitable trust, by way of an Act of Parliament.
