The Big Issue prides itself on the concept of “A Hand Up, Not A Handout”, which is why we have such a long-standing partnership with the Social Enterprise Academy (SEA).
Next week, The Big Issue will be publishing a 24-page supplement highlighting how SEA carries out important work within colleges and schools promoting social enterprises to young people.
SEA are not the only ones who share The Big Issue’s core social values. The Academy also work with Kibble, a Scottish children’s charity that has provided sponsorship to SEA and as such has offered amazing opportunities for young people, including visiting The Big Issue offices earlier this month.

Last month, Kibble announced a groundbreaking partnership with the St Mirren Independent Supporters Association (SMISA) to become the driving force behind a fan takeover of the Paisley football club, purchasing a 27.5 per cent stake.
Their plan is to create exciting new prospects and future opportunities for the young people associated with Kibble in areas such as employment, training and education, whilst also increasing access to possibilities in sport, health and wellbeing.
