Shine is a leading New Zealand provider of specialist domestic violence support and services. We help women, children and men get out of the cycle of family violence and give them the chance to have a better, happier, safer future. 

Shine Helpline
Anyone in New Zealand affected by abuse can call our free phone 0508 744 633 for help 24/7, or chat online at www.2shine.org.nz.  Callers can receive information, support and help with safety planning referrals to other appropriate support services.  Our helpline service has access to a range of interpreters and our helpline staff are also trained to use the NZ Relay service for deaf callers. 

Shine Women's Refuge
Shine's Refuge can offer short-term accommodation in Auckland for women and their children who are at risk of further harm from an abusive partner.  Our two refuges are at confidential addresses and offer warmth, shelter, safety, food and clothing, and victims are supported by experienced and friendly staff.

While at the refuge, families are helped with access to any needed services and to transition to safe, permanent accommodation.

The refuge service can be accessed through our helpline.
