Founded in 1990, Shine is New Zealand’s leading specialist domestic violence service provider.

Shine is an acronym that stands for Safer Homes in New Zealand Everyday. This name – and our aims in addressing the scourge of domestic violence – are hopeful, positive and optimistic. We want people to feel that there is some light shining on a terrible problem in New Zealand and that some brightness is ahead.

Shine provides a range of effective, practical and innovative services to achieve our mission to stop domestic violence 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 through our professional training programmes; Shine RESPOND in communities, the DVFREE programme in workplaces, and our health sector partnerships.
