  • Thank You Devonport-Takapuna Local Board

    The Wilson Home Trust would like to acknowledge and thank the Devonport Takapuna Local Board for the recent grant of $2,000 to assist with the costs of running our 2017 annual Children’s Christmas party. The grant enabled us to provide a stage and sound system on the day, where several different groups of performers were able to entertain the crowds, including the Royal New Zealand Navy Pipes and Drums and dancers from the Fiele Dance School.


Children and Families

We are a registered charitable trust (CC 21396) supporting children with physical disabilities and their families.
We are based on Auckland’s North Shore and support families living in the northern half of the North Island of New Zealand.

What’s On

We have gardens, a small meeting room, and outdoor play space for families to use, here on site.


We provide grants to children and young people who have a physical disability, are younger than 22 years and live in the northern half of the North Island.

Our Story …

… started in 1937 when Mr & Mrs W R Wilson gifted their family home, and 13 acres of magnificent coastal gardens at Takapuna, for the benefit of children with physical disabilities and their families.

Many people working together.

Our Trust team works alongside the Waitemata District Health Board, the Wilson Centre and the Ministry of Education’s Wilson School.
