The Wilson Home Trust
The Wilson Home Trust is a private Trust that provides information, support and services to physically disabled children and their families, in the upper North Island of New Zealand. Located on the cliff top of Lake Road, Takapuna on Auckland's North Shore, the Wilson Home Trust is custodian of 13 acres of magnificent coastal land and gardens, as well as the original Wilson family home. In addition the site is also now home to a Child Rehabilitation Outpatient Clinic, six Respite Villas, Wilson School for children with additional learning needs and an non denomination chapel where weddings and christenings are held.
