Good Shepherd is a not-for-profit organisation whose Mission is to tackle the significant issues impacting women, girls and their families. We’ve been walking alongside women and girls in their journey to being safe, well, strong and connected for 160 years in Australia, and over 400 years internationally.

Good Shepherd’s programs include:

  • No Interest Loans: Safe and affordable credit with 0% interest and no fees or charges. Borrow up to $2,000 for essentials including whitegoods, educational expenses, car repairs and rego, medical expenses and more. No Interest Loans are available to people of all gender identities. Please visit nils-provider-finder/ to find the nearest not-for-profit community No Interest Loans provider. No Interest Loans team can also be reached on 13NILS (13 6457).
  • Financial Independence Hub: It is a free and confidential service to support victim-survivors of family and domestic violence to move forward with managing their finances, particularly in rebuilding after financial abuse. We provide one-on-one support with conversations about money, including managing debts, budgeting, work options and more – with the outcome that participants feel more confident in making financial decisions. We also provide referrals to other relevant services. The Financial Independence Hub is available to people of all gender identities and the team can be reached on 1300 050 150 or . Interpreter services are available.
  • Good Shepherd also offers a range of place-based services, including support for those with experience of family & domestic violence and homelessness, families experiencing challenges or trauma (including parents and young people), small business support and more. We also provide training and resources to both not-for-profit and for-profit organisations looking to partner with us in building resilience in our communities and amplifying our work.
