Corporate partners

Thank you to all our Corporate Partners who provide ongoing support for Shine: 


In 2018, Suncorp employees partnered with Shine as part of Suncorp’s community giving program, Brighter Futures. This program inspires and enables Suncorp employees to make a difference in the communities where they live and work. Through volunteering, fundraising and donating, Suncorp employees will help Shine to make more New Zealand homes violence free.


Westpac was instrumental in helping  Shine develop an online education portal for businesses to raise awareness of domestic violence issues, and it was the very first business to be awarded the DVFREE Tick – an accreditation run by Shine acknowledging the bank’s comprehensive domestic violence programme. Westpac’s ongoing support of Shine over many years has seen staff regularly take part in Shine’s annual fundraising campaign, sign up to payroll giving and take part in initiatives benefiting Shine. From the head office to branches around the country, Westpac staff have stood up against domestic violence. 




Shine has been a charity partner of the Vodafone Warriors since 2012, and the Warriors especially support KIDshine.  We are so grateful for the many opportunities we have through the Warriors, including players in our TV ads, doing school visits, and appearing in our promotional collateral, as well as our fundraising at a Warriors' home game every year.  We are proud of this ground-breaking partnership between a major New Zealand male sports team and an anti-abuse charity.

Answer Services makes it possible for Shine to use their answering service by providing a significant discount on their rate. Their answering service helps ensure that Shine provides a professional 24/7 response to urgent referrals from police and hospitals. This is incredibly important and helpful when, for example, Shine’s after hours advocates are on a callout when another one is referred, or when daytime staff are all unavailable when a call comes in. Answers offers a comprehensive range of top-quality and personalised call services with New Zealand based call centres.


Soar has sponsored Shine’s printing for a number of campaigns and projects in recent years. Soar understands the challenges faced by not-for-profit organisationsbetter than any other printer. Soar has been working with charities, trusts, sports groups and community organisations for years, helping them to make their print budgets go further and do more. Every print project we take on adds to our store of knowledge, so we’ve becoming something of a ‘holding house’ for best-practice NFP print management.
