The need is urgent

Imagine being trapped in a violent relationship, unable to leave because of financial insecurity. This is a devastating reality for countless women and their children. Your donation helps us build an Australia where women are safe, well, strong and connected, including having the financial capability, resources and resilience to move forward.

160 Years of Impact

For 160 years Good Shepherd has been supporting women, girls and their families, but we can’t do it without you. Your donation this tax time supports our work to create a future where women and girls can live fulfilling lives.

Our history in Australia goes back to 1863, when Sister Mary Euphrasia Pelletier sent four Good Shepherd Sisters to Melbourne to support women and children in difficult circumstances. We’ve grown into an organisation that touches lives across the globe, advocating for and supporting women experiencing disadvantage, violence and uncertainty, from all walks of life.

Today, Good Shepherd is the world’s largest and longest-running organisation supporting women and girls, with a presence in 73 countries. Thank you for being part of our journey.

Together, we can create lasting change and build a brighter future for women, girls and their families. Your generous donation will help rebuild, move forward and live fulfilling lives.

When you donate to Good Shepherd, you are walking with us, to walk alongside women, girls and their families experiencing disadvantage and vulnerability. We’re grateful for your support.

Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand (ABN 61 354 551 576) is a registered charity.

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.

Consider a donation 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.
