One of the oldest charities in the UK

As one of the major charities in the North West, we offer a diverse range of support to adults and children in the region through our schools, care homes, community and adoption services, working at the heart of some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged communities.

Our fundraising relies on our supporters to help us continue this work, with people taking part in abseils, running marathons, cycling to Paris, holding cake sales at work, skydiving, or by simply donating to our charity shop, to help us raise funds.

Traditionally based in schools, the Good Shepherd Appeal is one of our oldest appeals and generations of schoolchildren have continued to support us by taking part. Across the last 10 years the appeal has raised over £500,000 to support our work.

Pupils at all the schools taking part really use their imagination and come up with some amazing ideas that their friends and staff can take part in.

If your school wants to take part you can access all the resources you need here.

This is Lottie and Hope from Christ the King Catholic Primary School in Wavertree, Liverpool. Last year, they held an Easter bonnet parade to support the Good Shepherd Appeal.

Do you remember taking part in Good Shepherd at school?

Recently, we’ve been researching how schools across the North West have supported the Good Shepherd Appeal since its early days.

We’ve found some great stories and pictures of young people taking part in Good Shepherd at school showing how they selflessly worked to help others, be it bringing in pocket money, having a jumble sale or dressing up for the day.

We’ve heard from many adults who have fond memories of taking part as a child in their school days, and they were pleased to hear the appeal is still inspiring young people today.
