Domestic violence doesn't know postcodes
23-Mar-2016 | Shine News
Shines Jill Proudfoot and Mary McGee talk about working for Shine and dealing with domestic violence on a daily basis. Tackling the enormous problem of domestic violence can start with a simple word of encouragement, Mary McGee says. "Don't give up hope," she tells those caught in the grip of abuse. Don't give up believing that you can be safe. You deserve better than this."

Shine to Merge with PSN 1 July
15-Mar-2016 | Shine News
We are very happy to announce that the Boards of Shine and PSN have finalised an agreement that will mean Shine merging into PSN as of 1 July 2016. Shine has had a formal partnership with Presbyterian Support Northern for the last four years. We know each other well, and our mutual trust and respect has grown over this time. This merger is a natural progression in our relationship.
As a result of this decision, Shine will become a new service division of Presbyterian Support Northern – one of New Zealand’s largest social service providers – alongside PSN’s other service divisions ‘Family Works’ and ‘Enliven’.
Together, Shine and Family Works Northern can offer a seamless continuum of services to children, adults and families experiencing (or perpetrating) family violence, which will include: crisis advocacy for adults and children; refuge accommodation; client educative programmes; stopping violence programmes; social work; counselling; parenting programmes, budgeting and emergency food support. By merging with PSN, Shine will also potentially have enhanced capacity to provide corporate and sector workforce training in domestic abuse.
After 1st July:
We reached this decision following an extensive external and internal strategic review over the past 18 months, which we undertook to shape our future direction to 2020. We have recognised that the environment in which we are operating is undergoing significant change and that we need to adapt to ensure Shine’s essential services and impact on the problem of domestic abuse is broadened. One of our key strategic objectives coming out of this process was to establish and strengthen strategic alliances to have a greater impact at a national level.
More about PSN:
PSN was established about 130 years ago and provides health and social services across the Upper North Island, from Taupo to Whangarei, primarily through its Enliven and Family Works services. Enliven provides community based support for older people, those with disabilities, and ACC claimants who require home-based support. The primary focus of Family Works is on medium to high risk children and youth, within the context of their families/whanau. PSN has been independent from the Presbyterian Church since 1957. PSN is also part of a national federation called Presbyterian Support New Zealand (PSNZ) which provides a national presence for the service delivery work of seven autonomous Presbyterian Support organisations, that together cover all of New Zealand. Through this federation, Family Works New Zealand (FWNZ) operates nationally. Visit PSN's website.
What this means for Shine supporters
As a service arm of PSN, Shine will continue to need the support of our generous donors and sponsors to ensure future growth is possible to meet the enormous demand for our services. We would very much, for example, love to expand our KIDshine service to operate in all of PSN’s service area. But this will simply not be possible without support from our donors and sponsors.
If you have any questions or concerns about this future direction for Shine, please contact Shine’s Communications & Development Director, Holly Carrington at 09-815-4598 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
