Shine provides a range of effective, practical and innovative services to achieve our mission to stop domestic abuse in New Zealand. We directly help thousands of adult and child victims every year to become safe and stay safe through our frontline services, and we indirectly help thousands more every year through professional training programmes, our DVFREE workplace programme, and our health sector partnerships.

Shine works closely with a number of Government agencies, community organisations and businesses to achieve our goals more effectively and stretch our limited dollars much further, from the NZ Police and Child Youth and Family Services to Auckland District Health Board (and other DHBs), Community Probation, and other not-for-profits such as Lifeline and Youthline. 

Every year, Shine directly helps thousands of adult and child victims of domestic abuse to be safer, and we motivate hundreds of men that hurt their families to change their behaviour. We help thousands more by supporting and training other professionals to effectively intervene and support victims of domestic abuse.
