Shine Family Violence volunteers honoured

June 19, 2013 at 3:19 PM

The Shine after hours safety team of 40 women members volunteer in the evenings and weekends to domestic violence callouts by the Police and referred by the Auckland District Health Board. For this 24/7 work Minister of Health Tony Ryall presented Shine with an award on 18 June, during National Volunteering Week. As explained by Jane Drumm CEO of Shine 'volunteer advocates come face-to-face with victims with serious and horrible injuries or other health issues - such as multiple broken limbs,.. and mental issues -- which make communication difficult and stressful..[and work hard] to help victims of domestic abuse, to give them a chance of a better, happier, safer future."
