Volunteer with us

Our volunteers come together from a range of different backgrounds to help transform lives in local communities across North and North West Tasmania.

Would you like to be a City Mission volunteer?

City Mission has been there providing care and assistance to those who are most vulnerable in our community for almost 170 years.

City Mission Volunteers are integral to our operations, without them we would not be able to continue the work we do in the community. With the assistance of dedicated volunteers we continue to provide a helping hand to thousands experiencing hardship, providing a way forward and a brighter future, transforming lives in Jesus’ name, in local communities across North and North West Tasmania. 

City Mission Volunteers come together from diverse backgrounds. Everyone can play an important role in helping transform the lives of people in experiencing hardship. Whether you are a retired senior manager, hairdresser, teacher, cleaner, retail or hospitality worker, busy mum, young professional, are looking for experience or you’re someone with extraordinary BBQ skills, there is a place for you as a City Mission Volunteer.

We understand life's busy, that's why we offer volunteer opportunities that fit with your lifestyle. You can volunteer on a regular basis weekly or monthly or you can choose to join us for special events and activities throughout the year.

Becoming a City Mission Volunteer

We make joining us as a volunteer as easy as we can, follow these 3 simple steps:

Step 1:

Fill in the online registration form with your contact details and choose the areas you are most interested in working. Once you've done this, one of our team will be in touch within 3-7 business days. 

Step 2:

One of the City Mission Volunteer team will contact you to discuss current volunteer vacancies and your availability. Please note that an Australian Police Check and a Working with Vulnerable People application are requirements for City Mission volunteers, however we'll lodge and pay for this on your behalf. This process can take between 4-6 weeks to process so please be patient.

Step 3:

Once your paperwork has been processed and police check approved, we'll contact you to arrange your first shift and for you to meet your supervisor and team mates.
