    Our main form of assistance is food. On 3 days each week (Tuesday, Friday & Sunday) between 12pm and 1pm we distribute food parcles for individuals to take away. The distribution takes place from the car park off Darlington St.. No referrals are needed but we ask to see a document (eg an official letter) showing the name of each person receiving help. The type and quantity of food offered depends on what is available, but normally includes sandwiches or tinned food. Extra help is given to families on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

About Good Shepherd Ministry, Wolverhampton

man helping at GSM Wolverhampton

Good Shepherd Ministry is a charity whose aim is to assist the homeless and others in need in Wolverhampton. We provide practical assistance in the form of food and toiletries – some of the basic necessities of life.

The ministry was begun in 1972 by a Roman Catholic religious order of Brothers, The Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd. The Brothers (who are now known as the Brothers of St John of God) have projects to help the poor in many countries on all continents.

Over the years the Brothers have been involved in various works to help people in need in Wolverhampton. The current project began in 2003 and takes place in the Methodist Centre, Darlington Street.

It began in a small way but grew over the years as the need increased and more support was received from the community. Today our assistance program is operating 7 days a week, helping about 250 people each day, individuals and families.

Good Shepherd Ministry is a registered charity. It is administered by a management committee whose members include representatives of local churches and local business people.  The services provided are organised and operated by the Brothers, supported by their employees and about 80 volunteers.

Most of the food we pass on to our service users is donated by friends and supporters. Our supporters come from all sectors of society and include individuals, companies, schools, religious bodies and other organisations. Our financial needs are met by donations from individuals and organisations of all kinds, and an annual grant from Wolverhampton City Council. Our key values are hospitality, care, compassion, dignity, excellence, justice, respect and trust.
