Become a volunteer


At Hobart City Mission, we value the dedication and hard work of our volunteers. Without them we could not achieve our mission to help people in need in Southern Tasmania.

Volunteering is about giving of your time, skills and experience to help individuals and the community at large.

Whether working in one of our op shops, or providing companionship to a hospital inpatient, volunteering with us is a rewarding and valuable way to make a contribution to your community. The wide range of volunteer opportunities we offer gives you the chance to gain valuable skills and experience and to meet new people.

We provide training, support and formal recognition of our volunteer workers and seek to involve them in decision making. Here are some of the ways that you can be involved at Hobart City Mission.

Volunteer Opportunities

Retail Operations Program

Hobart City Mission operates several retail outlets and op shops across the city of Hobart to provide low cost items and to generate funds for the support of our charitable work. We have many opportunities for volunteers to assist with our retail stores and to carry out tasks in a wide range of retail areas.
