Many changes are taking place:
A new office space: Previously an Aviva call centre, Swan House has become a charity hub housing a wide range of different charities. Mission International, one of these charities, is now located in part of the North Wing of the 55,500 sq ft property on the western edge of the city of Dundee.
From a ‘box’ to a ‘barn’!
During its first 8 years Mission International has operated from an 18ft long garden shed, but now we have a spacious suite of offices and rooms which we can develop and into which we can expand.

- Swan House:
- The North Wing:
A new job: Since 2006 Mission International Director Hugh Henderson has worked full-time at Dundee and Angus College (formerly Angus College) in a student support role. On 1st July 2014 however Hugh began his new job as CEO of Mission International (a role he has covered in a voluntary capacity for almost 8 years. The chance to develop, expand and grow the organisation is now available to us and we seek to make the best of this significant new opportunity.
A new designation: Mission International will soon become a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). This new designation will allow us to develop the organisation more effectively into the future. Donors will be given more information about this in due course. News on the changes will be posted on this blog too.
