Assertive Outreach

Carrie's Place staff attend SoupzOn weekly to provide initial assessment, information, advice referrals and support. SoupzOn provide meals to those in need several times per week from the Cessnock TAFE Rotunda – Darwin Street Cessnock. Follow-up is provided from the Samaritans Information and Neighbourhood Centre (SINC).

Funding has been received  through the ClubGrants program to assist in the delivery of this program including items such as sleeping bags, tents, phones and food vouchers. Thank you to  Cessnock Leagues Club, East Cessnock  Bowling Club and Kurri Kurri Bowling Club, without this support Carrie’s Place would be unable to provide this much needed service.
