New social enterprise, Solasta delivers psychological and therapy services in Klemzig
We are delighted to announce the opening of a new social enterprise by Sonder.
Based just 10 minutes from the CBD, Solasta offers a range of evidence-based assessment and psychological therapy services for adults, young people and their families.
Solasta’s professional and experienced team of Clinical and Registered Psychologists and other health professionals provide clients with individualised support to help them to achieve their goals, and shine their brightest!
Solasta’s team is committed to providing confidential and respectful services that recognise and build on individual strengths, and respect individual choice.
The new service is conveniently located next to Klemzig Village Medical Clinic on North East Road, with ample off-street parking, disability parking and public transport accessibility.
Inside, the space has been thoughtfully designed to create a warm and welcoming experience for clients with ample natural light.
On the evening of Friday 18 June, we hosted a soft launch event to celebrate the opening of the new service. Staff from Solasta, Sonder and the Klemzig Village Medical Clinic attended the event and enjoyed food and drinks and had the opportunity to tour the new centre and chat with Solasta and Sonder staff about the new centre and its services.
What is a social enterprise?
A Social Enterprise is a business venture which allows financial and social values to co-exist. It is a business driven by a social purpose that is at the heart of what they do. The profits generated by the business are re-invested to support the fulfilment of the social purpose.
Sonder operates social enterprises, such as Solasta and Sonder IT that aim to be financially sustainable while providing social benefits to local communities.
At Solasta, the revenue generated is re-invested back into Sonder. These small surpluses of income enable Sonder to continue to provide innovative services for clients that align with the organisation’s values and social purpose, beyond allocated funding.
The revenue generated is also re-directed back into Solasta itself to fund student placements and internships. This not only provides Solasta clients the option to access free mental health services, delivered by Students and Interns but it also contributes to building the capacity of South Australia’s future mental health workforce.
Put simply, Solasta is a ‘good business, doing good’.
