About Us

We work locally with a number of key partners to assist people who face challenges brought about by social and economic exclusion, isolation, violence in the home and financial insecurity.

Good Shepherd New Zealand was established in 2012 to build on the work of the Good Shepherd Sisters who have been assisting women and girls experiencing disadvantage in New Zealand since 1886. The organisation is governed by Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand and draws on the collective expertise within this network, including Good Shepherd Microfinance, Australia’s largest microfinance organisation.
