Shine Refuge

About this service

Shine Refuge can offer short-term accommodation for women and their children who are at risk of further harm from an abusive partner. There are two refuges in Auckland – one on the North Shore and one in Central Auckland.

While you’re staying at the refuge, Shine’s refuge staff help you to find safe, permanent housing and provide information about Work and Income benefits, support groups, counselling, housing, and help to find a lawyer.

If you want to talk about going to stay in a Shine refuge or a women’s refuge somewhere else in New Zealand, please ring the Shine Helpline at 0508-744-633.
