Parent Support

Good Shepherd aims to see a world in which all women, girls and families are safe, resilient, strong and connected.

Reaching this goal can be difficult for people in vulnerable situations or those experiencing hardships. They may be affected by:

  • financial and relationship issues
  • mental health challenges
  • struggling to parent at a young age 
  • lack of information or access to support
