Budget 2018

"We have been hearing promises of funding increases for such a long time now, it's actually hard to believe that it is going to happen," Shine’s spokeswoman Holly Carrington said. "And while a 30 per cent increase is still not nearly enough to meet the demand..it is significant and it will make a difference. It will also be a huge boost to the morale of all the very hardworking frontline family violence specialist staff across the country who have felt undervalued by our society for so long."

“I would not have made it this far without Shine’s support. Shine helped me when I hit bottom and there was no hope, then supported me with everything, before and after the birth of my son. You gave me the strength to stand on my feet and look forward when I was miserable and suicidal. I have my life and freedom back as I have a new warm and safe place and my ex-partner is in prison. Thank you for saving my life and my son’s life!!” a Shine client
