The Selwyn Institute

The Selwyn Institute is part of The Selwyn Foundation. It was developed to advance the understanding of ageing and spirituality and to enrich the lives of older adults. We facilitate and promote knowledge exchange, research and education. We also provide training as well as advocate on issues that impact older people's wellbeing.


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

Our charitable mission is to deliver quality services that are responsive to the ageing person and their family, ensuring that our charitable outreach supports those who are vulnerable or in need.


To do this, we believe that “to care for older people, you have to care about them” me mātua aroha ki te tangata, hei manaaki tika i a rātou and this ethos is reflected in our approach to the care and wellbeing of all who connect with us – known as The Selwyn Way.
