Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand (GSANZ) is a member of the global Good Shepherd Network, which since 1835 has increased to over 73 countries. Our long-term vision for change is that women, girls and families are safe, well, strong and connected. For almost 200 years we have focused on and been committed to tackling the issues of our time. We work to advance equity and social justice and support our communities to thrive. We work closely with governments, regulators, the community sector and private industry to deliver better outcomes for the community. We provide tailored responses for women and their children, living in crisis and experiencing hardship. We seek positive change in laws, policies, social norms and behaviours through research, policy and advocacy to address the underlying structural causes of injustice, exclusion, and inequality.
