The Winter Appeal is now closed for blankets, beanies and clothing related items. Thank you to all who donated our storerooms are filled and we have distributed what we cannot store to other charities.

Food and financial donations always welcome!

Winter can be harsh, particularly for those living on the streets. The comfort of a warm coat or jacket can make a huge difference for not only the physical state, but the mental state of a person experiencing homelessness. Thank you to all who donated we have more than we can store of these items and are no longer taking blankets, jackets or beanies. Consumables including, Milo, Coffee, Chunky Soups (ring pull tins) “hearty Winter Warmers” are always welcome and we continue to accept these. Of course, if you've got a few spare bucks we would appreciate that too! You can help make a significant difference this Winter by donating funds to help Soul Cafe Newcastle assist the vulnerable and those sleeping rough on the streets.

The ultimate mission of Soul Cafe is to see vulnerable cafe guests reconnected with the community and placed on a path towards increased safety, health and purpose.

We are non-government funded and rely primarily on financial sponsorship from corporations, individuals and, to a lesser extent, on our own fundraising endeavours. We are a local community organisation responding to local community needs, supported by local community, corporate and private members.
