The Big Issue Group seeks to establish long-term, flexible partnerships with businesses and individuals, while creating exciting opportunities for staff engagement, profile raising and achievement of your CSR goals. Partnership with The Big Issue Group aligns your organisation with one of the most well-trusted brands in the UK, and demonstrates your firm commitment to a more equal society.
