A horror year for family violence

A horror year for family violence

While 2020 will be remembered by many as the year of COVID, staff at Shine and other family violence services, will remember it as a "horror" year, according to Shine's Policy Advisor Holly Carrington. Holly and Shine's Advocate Team Manager Debbs Murray spoke with Newshub about the increased severity and ongoing nature of the violence.

“The support we got from Shine felt like being airlifted to safety. Shine's help affected us in many positive ways – we regained our peace-of-mind, felt secure, and started to feel much safer while asleep at night.”
