About Us

The Good Shepherd was established by the Brothers of St John of God, a religious order who have supported the local community for over 40 years. We deliver services in a way that makes people feel valued and always try to hear their voice. Our aim is to end homelessness in Wolverhampton and support people out of poverty.

Since 2003 we’ve provided a food service in the city and over the last two years we’ve expanded the support we offer to include a day centre, meaningful activity programme, Housing First service and private sector supported lettings scheme. We also host a multi-agency hub bringing together a wide range of agencies including health, education, training, and support services.

At the Good Shepherd our staff are trained in Psychologically Informed Environments and Trauma Informed Care. We value lived experience and believe everyone has the capacity to change and achieve their full potential.
