Community services for older adults

Community Transport

A generous gift from the Stevenson Village Trust has enabled The Selwyn Foundation to purchase a fleet of three age-friendly vans, which can accommodate wheel chairs to offer a community transport service to Haumaru Housing tenants across Auckland.

We know from research that loneliness has a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of older people.

Being able to reconnect older people to their wider community and to others in a similar situation is paramount to their wellbeing.

Our vision is to be able to provide more and more older people with greater independence by providing reasonably priced and accessible community transport to community activities, and events they wish to access. These vans are equipped with GPS to ensure the safety of our staff and those older people we are transporting.
