If you are not familiar with the Lovewell Foundation and Lovewell Cafe, they assist women to rebuild their lives and their confidence and hold their heads high. The women they help are supported to dare to dream that they can have a different life and believe that they are worth it.
The amazing team is led by Annie Stonehouse, Executive Director of Lovewell Foundation Australia and Lovewell Cafe. They are passionate about building partnerships and work with counsellors, social workers and local businesses to achieve their charter.
Through their social enterprise Café Lovewell, the aim is to support women from a vulnerable background to rebuild their lives and enter into training or employment. Their cafe patrons know that they serve coffee and food with a purpose, and that by choosing Lovewell they are helping change a woman’s life forever.
