Our Program and Services

Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand’s mission is to strive for dignity and social justice for women, girls and families, collaborating globally and acting locally. We’ve walked alongside people experiencing disadvantage and vulnerability for 160 years in Australia, and over 400 years internationally. We take a trauma-informed strengths-based approach to our work, which includes advocating for evidence-informed systemic change.
