Social Enterprise

Our social enterprise activities are an essential part of City Mission's funding model.

City Mission operates a range of social enterprise activities across North and Northwest Tasmania which generate around one third of the funding required to deliver core programs and services each year. Last year, thanks to community support, $2.9 million was generated in sales from 11 Mission Shops and 4 Resale Centres, playing a huge part in maintaining City Mission programs and services.

The more you shop and donate, the more people we are able to help.

Each year City Mission transforms the lives of more than 10,000 Tasmanians. When you shop in one of City Mission's many Mission Shops or Resale Centres your money stays in local communities across North and North West Tasmania, helping us provide care and assistance to the most vulnerable in our community.

Without the generosity of local communities in North and North West Tasmania we simply wouldn't be able to meet the growing demand for assistance each year, supporting individuals and families through our Emergency Relief services in Burnie and Launceston.

To make sure we can continue to help the thousands of people who ask us for help each year, we have a responsibility to price our goods at a rate that allows us to help as many people as possible. However, our Community & Family Services programs can provide items free of charge, in special circumstances.

People who shop with us are from all walks of life and do so for many reasons including:

  • Regard op shopping as value for money
  • Prefer to wear unique, niche items
  • Want to contribute to sustainability by reducing landfill
