The Selwyn Foundation

Our legacy supports families now and into the future.

The Selwyn Foundation is an independent, Christian faith-based New Zealand charitable trust providing services to older people and their families.

With an enduring mission to deliver quality services that are responsive to the ageing person and their family, our unique and holistic approach to the care and wellbeing of the individual has redefined support for elders. We believe that “to care for older people, you have to care about them” and this principle is reflected in our charitable activities, community services, village environments and in our care for those who are most vulnerable or in greatest need in society.

Whether you live at home in your local community or in one of our independent living, residential or dementia care residences or if you work for the Foundation, you will find the same consistent quality of service, underpinned by our Christian faith.

Our services are focused on four key areas
