Volunteering

Volunteering with Hobart City Mission

At Hobart City Mission, we value the dedication and hard work of our volunteer workforce. 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 you are working in one of our Op Shops, or assisting to distribute Christmas presents to those doing it tough, volunteering with us is a rewarding and valuable way to make a contribution to your community. The wide range of volunteer opportunities we offer give 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. Volunteers are covered under HCM’s Insurance Policy.

Here are some of the ways that you can be involved at Hobart City Mission:

Op Shop Volunteer

City Mission Op Shops

The aim of our retail operation is to generate funds from the sale of donated goods through our City Mission Op Shops and Furniture Warehouse. These funds help HCM provide services in Southern Tasmania by assisting to improve the life of vulnerable members of our community.

Volunteers who work in our Op Shops make a real difference by creating a sense of community in each shop.
