We are on your side

At Good Shepherd we believe in the value of all young people. But sometimes, young people need extra support especially when faced with barriers that prevent them from opportunities and a chance to thrive.

Barriers may include:
● mental health
● social conflict, eg bullying, technology, mistrust of authority
● challenges maintaining engagement in school and education
● family violence
● trauma
● young parenthood
● disadvantage

How we support the Youth?

We support young people and their unique issues with a personalised approach and through our strong relationships with our local partners.

Our programs help to increase opportunities and allow young people to realise their own value.

Good Shepherd services include education, wellbeing programs and specialist counselling services. We work with community agencies, schools and parents to improve the outcomes and the wellbeing of young people.
