Celebrating National Volunteers Week! #NVW2020

This week from 18-24 May 2020, National Volunteer Week is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of volunteers around Australia. We are proud to celebrate the incredible staff from our partner organisations who have volunteered their time, expertise and goodwill to The Big Issue.

The Big Issue runs volunteering opportunities across our programs, including the Street Magazine Enterprise, Community Street Soccer Program and Women’s Subscription Enterprise. Each year hundreds of volunteers help to cook vendors breakfast at our fortnightly magazine launch, participate in a friendly game of street soccer or help our women’s workforce with a packing or call centre shift, or support vendors to sell magazines through The Big Issue Challenge.

Our volunteering programs aim to provide meaningful opportunities for volunteers to engage with the issue of homelessness and make a tangible difference – and for our program participants to meet new people and form connections in their community

At this uncertain time, it is more important than ever to recognise and celebrate the volunteers who help make The Big Issue community a better place. A big thank you to all of our volunteers!
