After over 150-years of providing help, we know what disadvantage and vulnerability look like, and we know how to enable positive change.
Engaging our Advisory Services not only gives you the benefits of Good Shepherd’s legacy of learning and expertise – it also means supporting an organisation that leads in research and advocacy for the very community you want to help.
Training and Advisory

- co-design expertise with trained human centered design practitioners
- client understanding to deliver genuine insights on vulnerability
- strategic research and evaluation
- inclusive program design informed by over 30 years of working with vulnerable clients
