Our vision and strategic direction

We aspire for all women, girls and families to be safe, well, strong and connected.

Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand was established to address the critical, contemporary issues facing women, girls and families. We work to advance equity and social justice, and to support our communities to thrive. 

Our three-year strategy (2019-2022) outlines the world we want to see and our role in advancing it.

It also speaks to the positive impact we will deliver, our priorities and the actions we will take to deliver this impact.
