About us

Founded in 1990, Shine is a leading specialist family violence service provider in New Zealand. 

Shine is an acronym that stands for Safer Homes in New Zealand Everyday. This name – and our aims in addressing family violence – are hopeful, positive and optimistic.

We directly help thousands of adults and children who experience abuse every year to become safer through our frontline services; and we indirectly help thousands more through our professional training programmes and our health sector partnerships.


Shine Training

We provide a range of training and education programmes that aim to create an effective response to family violence in New Zealand.

DVFREE is designed to help workplaces provide a sustainable, best-practice response to family violence that exceeds legal obligations.

Shine RESPOND is a family violence response training programme designed specifically for community professionals, family violence practitioners, social agencies, and organisations that serve communities.
