Our Story

Changing the world's relationship with alcohol, one Sunday at a time.

Hello Sunday Morning was born in 2009 when founder, Chris Raine undertook a year-long experiment to quit drinking. A nightclub promoter at the time, Chris blogged about the challenges and successes of this experiment when he woke up hangover-free every Sunday Morning signing off with “Hello, Sunday Morning!” Since first extending the challenge to his flatmate, Chris has grown Hello Sunday Morning into a bona-fide health service, with Daybreak as its key offering. 


Our Values


We ambitiously innovate. We make good ideas a reality through strategic risk-taking, a future-focus and courageous action. We ‘fail forward’ and see this as learning, and we leverage our learning to help us to work smarter and achieve more.


We cultivate awareness. We strive towards greater understanding of ourselves and our membership. Empathy and self-reflection are a daily practice for us as we continuously consider our impact on each other and the community we support.


We adapt to opportunities and challenges in a way that draws upon consistent core values but that considers the impact on self and others. We cultivate and encourage self-reflection so that through knowing ourselves, we can continue to grow both individually and collectively.


We provide care with dignity. We protect, honour and respect our membership and acknowledge their value, autonomy and worthiness. We believe that everyone has the right to health and wellbeing and we are deliberately just, non-judgmental and inclusive in all that we do.


We believe in everyday kindness. We serve our membership with compassion and we create better outcomes by willingly helping and supporting our members and each other.
