Helpline operates 7 days/week, 9am to 11pm.
Offers advocacy, support and referral to anyone (male/female, straight/GLBTQ) experiencing partner abuse or family violence, OR anyone perpetrating family violence who wants help to change OR anyone wanting advice on how to support someone they know in these situations. Work closely with police, Child Youth & Family and District Health Boards.
Shine wants to make sure that anyone experiencing domestic abuse in New Zealand has a place to turn and someone to talk to. People who use abusive behaviours with family members and make a decision to change their behaviour also need help and support to do this.
