About City of Hobart - Mathers House

The City of Hobart provides Mathers House and Criterion House as places for activities and programs for a range of people, with a focus on older members of the community.

The houses provide a warm, welcoming, cheerful and safe environment along with a wide range of social, recreational, cultural and educational activities.

Low cost meals are prepared and served by volunteers each weekday at Mathers House.

All positive ageing activities are developed in consultation and partnership with individuals, community groups and organisations that have an interest in the health and wellbeing of older people.

Coordinators are employed to manage the two facilities, supported by a dedicated and talented group of volunteers.

Volunteers are a vital resource for the houses and new volunteers are always welcome to assist with a range of tasks such as cooking, food preparation, tutoring and greeting customers.
