The need is urgent

We know you understand the grim reality of countless women experiencing family violence, unable to leave due to financial insecurity. Looking to build a better future, for themselves and their loved ones.

We walk alongside women and girls every day, supporting them to leverage their inherent strengths and bravery to move forward. Your ongoing support helps ensure that Good Shepherd can continue our work. To develop innovative programs and services. To advocate for the real, sustained systemic change required to genuinely improve outcomes for women and girls.

160 Years of Impact

The history of Good Shepherd in Australia goes back to 1863, when Sister Mary Euphrasia Pelletier sent Good Shepherd Sisters to Melbourne to support women and children experiencing vulnerability. Today, Good Shepherd is the largest and longest-running organisation supporting women and girls, with a presence in 73 countries. With your support, we’ve done so much, but there’s so much more to do.

Your contribution has already sparked change, and we invite you to continue this journey with us. Let’s build a brighter future for women, girls and their families together. Your generous donation will help more women rebuild, move forward and live fulfilling lives.

When you donate to Good Shepherd, you are partnering with us to support women, girls and their families. We’re so grateful.

Did you know?

• 1 in 4 women in Australia have experienced violence by an intimate partner or family member (27%)
• 1 in 6 women experienced childhood abuse (18%)
• 16% of women (1.6 million) have experienced financial abuse perpetrated by a partner
• The rate of homelessness for women increased 10.1% in 2021 while the rate for men declined
• Women aged 12-24 and aged 55+ were the two groups seeing the fastest increases

These women are not just statistics. They are sisters, daughters, mothers, friends… and even one person living with the impacts of violence, poverty and instability is too many.

That’s why we’re asking you to go even further this end of financial year. Supporting Good Shepherd means you are a partner in change – creating a future where all women and girls can be safe, well, strong and connected.
