About The Adventure
Join us at the Soul Cafe for A Taste of Soul! This is an evening you'll not soon forget as we get to experience the fantastic work the team of the Soul Cafe do for the disadvantaged people of the Newcastle region.
The evening will start with a welcome drink, nibbles and mingling with your fellow WEA guests, then sit down to a hearty home-cooked dinner and dessert in the dining room where Soul Cafe serves lunch to those less fortunate six days a week. Throughout the night, we'll hear from the volunteers that run the charity about how Soul Cafe makes a massive difference to its guests; it's way more than a free meal for each of them. We'll take a tour of the Soul premises and we're sure you'll be amazed at the service with dignity they offer every day.
Did you know the fastest-growing group of disadvantaged Australians is women over 50? Through circumstances like divorce, underemployment, lower than average superannuation savings, many women in what should be their 'golden years' find themselves in desperate need of help for the basics needed to survive; food and shelter. Women Embrace Adventure is proud to partner with Soul Cafe to offer a hand up in any small way we can.
A bit of the Soul Cafe.....
Soul Cafe was established in August 2003 to serve hot meals, free of charge, to the highly disadvantaged of the Newcastle region. Today, they provide hundreds of free sit down and take away meals each week.
Many of Soul Cafe's guests deal with homelessness, drug or alcohol addiction, crime or violence, poverty, separation, mental health or illness concerns, and accommodation needs.
They really do more than just serve a meal; the ultimate mission is to see vulnerable cafe guests placed on a path towards increased safety, health and purpose. They aim to lift a group of people who are less fortunate to a greater level of lifestyle within our community through a comprehensive approach that assists them in working through their issues and re-engaging back into society. In addition, the meals provided are an avenue to link cafe guests with other necessary services including drug and alcohol and substance abuse programs, accommodation links, Centrelink referral, mental health counselling, refuge referral, haircuts, legal aid, podiatry and a free doctor's clinic.
Soul Cafe is non-government funded and relies primarily on financial sponsorship from corporations and individuals and, to a lesser extent, on our own fundraising endeavours.
Soul Cafe is a local community organisation addressing local community needs, supported by local community corporate and private members, Women Embrace Adventure is proud to partner with them to offer a hand up to those in need.
