Gale Wieland 

Trust Manager

I was born in the UK, spent my high school years in South Africa and spent some time in the Caribbean before moving to New Zealand with my family in 1998.

My career has taken two paths, retail and commercial property development and management, and health care management.  

My role as Trust Manager of the Wilson Home Trust is to guide the team to support the wonderful families that we work with, and to connect with other agencies and organisations, to explore opportunities to grow and enhance our services.  We come to work every day in the beautiful gardens of the Wilson Home Trust in Takapuna to make the lives of children and young adults living with a physical disability easier, and we go home proud to know that we achieve this in so many ways.

In my other life, I have a gorgeous Huntaway Beardie X, a husband, daughter and grand-daughter, so life is full of love and fun.

Felicity Hendricks
Services & Support Co-ordinator

I am originally from Cape Town South Africa and moved to New Zealand with my family 20 years ago. I have three children and two grandchildren.

I am very passionate about family, and I always seek ways to make a difference in the lives of others

I have enjoyed working with children with disabilities, and my last role was working at Wairau Valley Special School for ten years as a Teacher Aide.

I joined the Wilson Home Trust three years ago as the Service and Support Coordinator and I am thrilled to have such a varied role. It’s great to be able to connect with the children and families across the region and also meet up with the organisations that support physically disabled children and young people.

In my spare time I enjoy cooking and baking and spending time with my family and especially my grandchildren. I also manage to find some time to do voluntary work in the community.

Steve Clegg
Site Manager

I have worked at the Wilson Home Trust for 20 years and am responsible for looking after the buildings and grounds and keeping the site looking amazing.

I enjoy working at such a beautiful place as the site is set in bush with sea views and I love the opportunity to work alongside the amazing teams that work with the disabled children and young people here on site.

I bring a breadth of experience to this role having worked on a range of building and property management projects.  

In my spare time I l love to go fishing  and spend time with my family and especially my gorgeous grandchildren.

Naomi Quested
Trust Administrator

As the Trust Administrator, I am available to help with any questions relating to the processing of the following grants:  Equipment / Activity, Young Adult, Holiday and Home Modificaton.  I also assist with accounts administration for accounts payable and other general admin duties associated with the day-to-day running of the Trust.

Most of my working life was spent in various admin roles whilst living in the UK.  Since moving to New Zealand in 2009, I have worked as an administrator in the not-for-profit sector and in my last role I worked for a charity raising funds for physically disabled children in third world countries, and it is now such a privilege to work for the Wilson Home Trust where every day is different and I enjoy helping and assisting our beneficiary families with any questions or queries they may have regarding our grants.

Originally from the UK, I moved to New Zealand with my husband Blair and son Jack.  In my spare time I enjoy walking and cycling with family and friends – when I walk on our beautiful beaches on a typical sunny day, I am reminded how lucky we are to live here.
