Testimonials


Sunrise2Sunrise came on board at a time when our family was feeling completely overwhelmed by the daunting task of organising supports for our son with very complex needs. Ravi's desire to make a difference in the community through providing a quality, supportive service that meets the needs of the people with disability and their families is evident in everything he and his staff team does. We are so grateful for the positive impact on our lives. Sunrise2Sunrise really has partnered with us in achieving our son's potential.

As a support worker for Sunrise2Sunrise it gives me a lot of satisfaction to know that I work for a company that really cares about the lives of the people it supports. Sunrise2Sunrise encourages their support workers to actively teach independent life skills, travel training, personal care and just have fun with outings and activities.

Support Worker

Before Sunrise2Sunrise started supporting me my mum was struggling to find suitable support workers. After Sunrise2Sunrise started supporting me, I have consistency with my choice of staff. I was able to achieve my goal to go for horse-riding and working on losing weight. My mum always tells me how stress free she is , our life has changed. Thank you to Sunrise2Sunrise team.
