The Auckland Diocese partners with The Selwyn Foundation to provide services to older people and their families.
Selwyn Centres are drop-in centres for people over the age of 65 who are living in the community.
Hosted in 25 churches across the diocese, the centres provide friendship, fun, support and advocacy for older people, helping to meet their need for companionship and social connection.
The centres offer a timetable of shared activities, gentle exercise, morning or afternoon tea and occasional excursions all at nominal cost, with transport available, if required. Each session is facilitated by a trained coordinator and a team of volunteers. People don’t have to be Anglican to attend – all faiths, backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities are welcome.
