January Update  

2018 was a  very busy year with 154 new referrals to the service.  We worked with almost 180 children and young people over the year.  Since Sandra, our Area Manager Aberdeenshire, started in post in June 2018 we have seen referrals from Aberdeenshire increase and we are now working with similar numbers of children and young people in the City and Shire.

We are committed to travelling to meet children and young people in a venue that is convenient for them, making the service accessible to everyone.  We provided a total of 856 one to one sessions.  These continue to be delivered free of charge. 

As a result of the increasing number of referrals we are receiving each month, we are looking for Sessional Support Workers to work in both Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire.  If you have experience of working with children and young people affected by loss, change and bereavement and would like to knowmore please get in touch with Eileen on 07827 755735 or email support@sunrisepartnership.org to arrange a time to meet for an informal chat about the work.

 Want to get involved? 

We have a small but enthusiastic team of volunteers who help raise funds and awareness for Sunrise.

Plans for 2019: bucket collections, bag packing, a quiz night, and gin & chocolate tasting.  None of this will  be possible without volunteers giving of their time.

So if you've got some time to spare, believe in what we are doing, and think you can help us to raise funds and awareness for Sunrise, we'd love to hear from you.  

To find out more about volunteering with Sunriseplease contact Eileen on 07827 755735 or info@sunrisepartnership.org .

If you'd like to arrange a fundraising event or activity, do please get in touch and we can give you posters and leaflets so people know who they are supporting. Have friends round for coffee, a Movie Night, order a take away, have a fun evening and make a donation to Sunrise.  Hold a Bake Sale at work or anything else you fancy doing.  You can reach us at info@sunrisepartnership.org  or message us via our Facebook page.   

We also have some Sunrise collection boxes.  If your workplace is happy to have one, just let us know and we will get it to you.  Everyone's small change can add up to a significant amount.
