An Update on VIC street selling

As we move into our second week of selling, it's been heartening to see the amount of support we have had from our readers. We're excited to see vendors proudly working in a new, COVID-safe environment, and being so warmly welcomed back by their communities and customers. 

Following recent announcements from the Victorian state government, street magazine selling will be paused in affected areas within metropolitan Melbourne for the next six weeks, effective from tomorrow 9 July. This decision has been made in the best health and wellbeing interest of our vendors, customers, and The Big Issue community at large.

Street selling will remain operational in all other areas of Australia, and our dedicated Vendor Support team will continue to provide support to our Victorian vendor group throughout this period, until they can return safely to work.

Thank you for your continued support.
