STREAT is one of Australia's leading hospitality social enterprises. We run four cafes, a coffee roastery, an arisian bakery and a catering and functions business, but the only reason we exist is to help disadvantaged young people who really need a hand.
STREAT's seven businesses provide 70% of its funding with the remaining 30% coming through philanthropic donations, marketing and fundraising. We have supported over 1,100 young people from across Victoria since we started in 2010 and have served over 2 million meals and coffees whilst providing over 65,000 hours of support and training to our young people.
Here's how our purchase is helping us to provide:
Healthy Self — wrap-around support including individual case management, linkages to other specialist service providers (drug and alcohol, mental health, housing services), group Life Skills programs and creative and social activities.
Healthy Job — hospitality programs including accredited CertII courses and work experience programs. We also provide workplace training and mentoring across our cafes, kitchens and bakery.
Healthy home — assistance support in finding a safe and long term place to live through partnerships with a wide range of housing services across Melbourne.
STREAT strives to create goodness in four key areas:
People — maximising our social footprint for young people. customers, stakeholder and staff.
Places & Planet — minimising our environmental footprint.
Performance — a sustainable social enterprise leader running a portfolio of efficient, effective and innovative businesses.
