Port Waratah Coal

Port Waratah Coal have been supporting Soul Café for many years now. Since 2015 they have funded the Soul Mental Health Clinic whose purpose is to provide Soul guests with mental health support in a non-threatening, friendly, familiar environment.

It is a vital service for the population that attend the cafe helping to assess when they are in crisis, giving advice on medications for addictions and making referrals to health services.

In the COVID period, the Soul Mental Health Clinic was unable to conduct its regular face to face sessions and adapted by moving to the street across the road from our meal service to connect with guests. Post – COVID sessions have been returning to normal and provided on average 12 occasions of service per week in 2021.

In April 2020, Port Waratah Coal Service approved a two-year cycle of funding, $40,758 per year, for the Mental Health Clinic through to the end of 2022. This generous grant ensures that the Soul Mental Health Clinic will continue providing our guests with support 25hrs a week until the end of 2022.
