What People Have Said About Meet & Eat...

I like this because I meet other people from other countries and we exchange experiences. I have made friends with other people that go to Sunrise.


The group is very supportive, mainly ladies, we can feel a bit lonely so we really want to find a place where we can share about our country and learn new things. I think Sunrise, it is like a bridge that can help connect people. It can be difficult to settle into a new place, Sunrise has a good atmosphere. It’s a lovely place where you can share your culture and meet others who are also new to the area. It feels very homely...


I like this group because I feel that I am with my family at that time. Thank you for being there xx.


It helps me to meet others, very nice group.


Friendly group where I have fun.


LGBTQ+ Group

We organise a monthly social LGBTQ+ group. It’s an opportunity to meet others and be yourself. Topics we discuss can be movies, books, music, self care and LGBTQ+ related topics. Sunrise staff and volunteers are on hand for support and signposting.

What Attendees Have Said...

Myself and my youngest child recently attended come out as they are having confusion about themselves. Everyone was wonderful and so welcoming.
