Social Enterprises

Over 30% of City Mission’s income is derived from its own social enterprise operations.

Our social enterprises are helping the environment, providing paid employment and volunteer opportunities and producing revenue to maintain and grow the valuable client services we offer to those in need across Northern Tasmania.
