Government announces funding package

Government has announced a funding package of $320 million over four years to address family violence and sexual violence. Shine GM Jane Drumm says, “This is by far the most significant investment in tackling these issues in New Zealand and feels like a real step forward. On the one hand I’m thrilled. On the other hand, I feel like it is about time. Far too many people have suffered for far too long.”

“"When I got to the Shine refuge with my boys, I felt an enormous weight lift off me. I realised how much anxiety and fear I had been carrying around for so long. Shine helped me get a Protection Order and Parenting Order against S. Within days, I began sleeping and eating normally again." ”
