The Big Shift returns for a third year on October 12 in support of our Women’s Subscription Enterprise.


Coinciding with Anti-Poverty Week, the event aims to raise awareness of our Women's Subscription Enterprise, which provides safe and meaningful employment to women as dispatch assistants, sorting and packing subscription copies of The Big Issue.


Since 2010, we have employed more than 120 homeless and disadvantaged women to sort and pack copies of The Big Issue magazine for subscribers every fortnight.
As part of The Big Shift, more than 200 business leaders will roll up their sleeves and pack magazines alongside the women and experience the life-changing power of this enterprise.


Following the shift experience, guests will hear from Lieutenant General David Morrison, who was instrumental in bringing about gender reforms during his time as Chief of Army. Employees within the enterprise will also share the ‘Big Shifts’ that have changed their lives.


The event will be hosted by Today co-host and The Big Issue Ambassador, Lisa Wilkinson.


We hope you can join us for this special event. Tickets are limited so be sure to reserve your seat at the shift today.
