Good Shepherd Sisters Award for Program Excellence

The Good Shepherd Sisters Award For Program Excellence is an appropriate honour at a time when operating within the not-for-profit sector is more challenging than ever.

The award is for developing a new or innovative approach that has enabled your NILS or StepUP program to better meet the needs of your clients, or allowed you to operate more efficiently as a provider. The Good Shepherd Sisters were able to do a lot with very little. They took an innovative leap when ‘experts’ advised them against it and put their faith in the community.

Has your program made changes, developed new systems – or modified old ones - in a way that embodies the audacity of the Good Shepherd Sisters? By entering this award we may all learn from you – and your program might win a great prize!

The Judges will consider:
  • has the program demonstrated benefit to their clients or local community through innovation, such as turning a potential set-back into an opportunity?
  • is there evidence of initiative and improvements in efficiency?
  • is the program audacious in its approach to better meeting the needs of clients?

* 1. Please tell us in 500 words or less about why your program deserves to win this award

* 2. What is the name of your organisation?

* 3. Please provide your contact details so we can get in touch regarding the awards if we need to.
