The Big Issue mission is to dismantle poverty by creating opportunity through self-help, social trading and business solutions – a “hand up, not a hand out” We provide an “access to all’ means for people to earn a legitimate source of income, to raise their self-esteem and to take control of their lives. One of the ways we do this is through supporting vendors to sell The Big Issue magazine.
Our vendors are traders, retailers on the High Street. Since The Big Issue was launched in 1991 and its Foundation in 1995, we’ve supported hundreds of thousands of people to work their way out of poverty. Over the past two decades the magazine has become synonymous with challenging, independent journalism. It currently circulates around 100,000 copies every week.
Vendors are allocated a pitch and issued with five free copies of the magazine to get them started. From that point, vendors invest in additional magazines at £1.50 and sell them on at £3.00 retaining the profit. Last year alone, we put more than £5million in the pockets of our vendors, releasing them from a dependence on hand-outs, building confidence, gaining respect, and providing a connection and in some cases a lifeline to their communities.
The Big Issue Foundation supports Vendors (and increasingly others) with “wrap around support`’ - (health, housing, debt, addiction, mental health and employability). We do this by connecting vendors with the vital support services, personal solutions, Big Issue programmes and employment pathways that enable them to rebuild their lives and determine their own routes to a better and more sustainable future. And this is where you come in…

About The Access Project:
The Access Project is an innovative education charity that helps bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds gain places at top universities. We support over 1,800 young people aged 14 to 18 across 35 schools.
The Access Project is expanding to become a national organisation. We work in London, the West and East Midlands, grew into West Yorkshire last year, and are expanding into the North West from September 2022. We have a team of 72 employees working in schools and in our regional offices.
A strong commitment to evidence and impact is at the heart of how we work, and we are proud that independent research shows our students achieve higher grades and are more likely to progress to top universities than similarly disadvantaged peers. We are a team passionately committed to our mission, and who support one another’s work. We are committed to improving The Access Project as a place to work for all our people and have developed a new People Strategy. We also recognise we have a way to go before we are the fully inclusive and diverse organisation we want to be, and are developing an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion strategy with support from external consultants and engagement from staff and trustees.
About the Partnerships and Communications Director role:
The Access Project has developed an innovative programme that has strong evidence that it addresses a huge social issue. We have also learned much about what it takes to shift the dial in helping disadvantaged students make it to a top university. We’re now aiming to double in scale with the aim of helping even more young people fulfil their potential and make it to a top university.
We have a loyal and committed supporter base and a demonstrably high-impact programme. We are looking for an exceptional candidate to capitalise on this to significantly accelerate our growth.

We are in the early stages of creating a donor development board – “Friends of The Access Project” - to engage new and existing individual supporters and their networks. There is huge potential to be bolder in promoting our impact; through our website, social media and through in-person networks. As part of our work to broaden our appeal, we are seeking mission-aligned patrons who will help us to reach their followers and amplify our work.
