The property that is now the Lamont Centre was bought in July 1999 by Sally Wood-Lamont

Additional funding for the total renovation needed to make the Centre accessible was obtained by the British Embassy, the Church of Scotland, her uncle, the late Donald Lamont and other individual donors.  Now fully renovated, the Centre boasts 2 multi-purpose rooms, a sport and computer room, a kitchen and one of the only accessible toilets and showerrooms in the city.  The Centre was envisioned as an education and work place where young adults with physical disabilities could learn employment skills which would enable their social integration.  It was celebrated as the first of its kind in Romania.

The Lamont Centre was officially founded in as an NGO in November 2000.  Since its inception, the Lamont Centre has been at the forefront of the disabled rights movement in Romania.  The Centre is not only dedicated to training people in job skills, but employs them and provides them with an opportunity to use their skills in a work environment.  The Centre has grown to encompass not only education, but various forms of therapy - physical, psychological, art, and sports.  Since 2001, sport has become increasingly popular and has enriched not only the lives of the members of the Sports Team but also promoted paralympic sport in Romania. The Team has grown from competing in local competitions to participating  worldwide including the first entry of a Romanian team in the Paralympic European Championships in Table Tennis at Lido de Jesolo in 2005.

Now the aim is to have a team for the Olympics in China in 2008 and London in 2012.   The Lamont Centre has also become a key player in promoting dialogue and networking between organizations of disabled people in Romania in order to strengthen their capacity to act to improve the situation of disabled people and to contribute to a stronger disability
movement throughout the country.
