Governor-General visit

We were privileged to have Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove recently visit The Big Issue’s head office in Melbourne.

The Governor-General spoke with students from Footscray City College in The Big Issue Classroom, met with employees from the Women’s Subscription Enterprise and heard about the life-changing power of the enterprise.  Sir Cosgrove also met with our CEO Steven Persson  and Editor Alan Attwood to hear about how we help disadvantaged Australians help themselves.

The Governor-General also had the opportunity to speak with Melbourne Vendor Russell, to hear about the positive changes he’s experienced since selling The Big Issue.
