Influencing policy

The Selwyn Foundation, through The Selwyn Institute, creates and maintains alliances with various universities, professional advocators and advocacy groups to influence policy in relation to ageing well and spirituality of older people. We actively participate with a range of peak bodies and sit on various committees and regularly submit feedback to central and local government on proposed bills and amendments.

Advisory Roles & Association

We are a member of the Retirement Village Association. The RVA is a voluntary membership organisation. Its governing body is the Executive Committee, made up of members elected by all accredited village members via a postal ballot before the Annual General Meeting.
