The Reverend Caroline Leys
I was ordained as an Anglican Priest and have contributed as a non-stipendiary priest in several parishes and at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Auckland. Since ordination in 1990 I have worked in private practice as a therapist, facilitator, trainer and more recently in ministry and business development. I have recently become a certified Sageing Leader for Sage-ing International.
As director of Spiritual Care, I am responsible for the development and refinement of Selwyn’s operational expression of Faith and Tikanga, which is written into our Constitution and is the basis for all that we do and exist for as an organisation. I also lead our strategic development of the spiritual wellbeing dimension of The Selwyn Way — which is our approach to the care and wellbeing of all who connect with us — so that spirituality is made accessible across everything we do as a charity, in our villages, through our community services, and through education and knowledge exchange for staff, older people and their families.
