Charity Partner

hyp is extremely proud to announce that we will be partnering with Soul Cafe in 2020, and helping contribute to the incredible work this community organisation is doing for the region. Soul Cafe is a non-government funded community organisation providing hundreds of free meals a week to highly disadvantaged members of the Newcastle community.

In partnering with Soul Cafe, we will be donating $1 from event ticket sold to our events in 2020. We hope that our little contribution will help fund more meals and services to help the disadvantaged in Newcastle and the Hunter Region.  

Many of Soul Cafe’s guests are dealing with issues of homelessness, drug or alcohol addiction, crime or violence, poverty, separation, mental health or illness concerns and accommodation needs.

Soul Cafe’s desire is to do more than just serve a meal. The ultimate mission of Soul Cafe is to see vulnerable cafe guests placed on a path towards increased safety, health and purpose. They aim to lift a group of people that are less fortunate to a greater level of lifestyle within our community. They do this through a comprehensive approach that assists them to work through their individual issues and to re-engage back into society. As such the meals provided are an avenue to link cafe guests with other necessary services including drug, 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 relies primarily on financial sponsorship from corporations and individuals, and fundraising endeavours. They are a local community organisation addressing local community needs, supported by local community corporate and private members.
