Sunrise staff work with families and children with nurturing compassion.

That our families are treated well and have their needs understood and met in a caring manner is so important – I trust Sunrise to do just this. They offer support that helps our youngsters to begin to make sense of what has happened in their young lives. A vital service that offers quality support to those pupils in need.
