About this course

Inspired by Street News, the New York street paper, The Big Issue was first launched in the UK in 1991 and is now sold by homeless and vulnerably-housed people across the country. A small, dedicated team of full-time employees and volunteers in the Bath office oversees the distribution of the Big Issue Southwest magazine, providing practical and personal support to vendors. Besides working closely with this team in their day-to-day duties, the intern will have an opportunity to help organize fundraising events, develop new services for vendors, and identify fresh business opportunities for the magazine locally. Initiative, good research and report-writing skills, as well as a responsible attitude, and an enthusiasm to work with vulnerable people, are therefore essential.
