About Us

The Good Shepherd was established in 2003 by the Brothers of Saint John of God to address poverty, homelessness and inequality in Wolverhampton. The Brothers have been involved in supporting the community for over 40 years.

Our vision is to end homelessness in Wolverhampton and create sustainable pathways out of homelessness and poverty. We do this by providing support and guidance to some of the most disadvantaged and marginalised people in our community.
