SunRise Trauma Support Centre
The purpose of the Trauma Support Centre at SAPS Garsfontein is to provide immediate practical and emotional support to victims of crime and or individuals, groups or families affected by a traumatic event. This is a free and confidential service rendered to any member of the public from any area. This service is rendered by trained volunteers from within the local Pretoria East community.
The Centre also delivers one-stop service to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault crimes, e.g. arranging a place of safety if necessary or making sure that victims of sexual crimes receive a medical examination and anti-retroviral medication. The Centre’s activities are monitored by the Department of Social Development as well as the Department of Safety and Security.
The Centre does not receive any state funding and is dependent on donations from members of the local community and businesses in the community. We also organise our own fundraising events.
Our Volunteers are available at any time to SUPPORT YOU in your time of crises!

SunRise SAPS Trauma Support Centre Youth day Celebration.
During June 2016 the SunRise Trauma Support centre together withs SAPS Garsfontein had a drug addiction awareness campaign at Atterbury Value Mart. During which the metro police had a demonstration of how there K9's can sniff out drugs, the Garsfontein Police put up an excellent show on catching an armed robber. We also had the drum majorettes from Laerskool Garsfontein that came to show of their talent. The volunteers froms the SunRise Trauma centre baked pancakes, to get much needed funds for our centre and had a change to market the Trauma centre. It was fun for all and we are extremely thankfull for all the sponsors.
