Manchester now has its first StreetWise SPPs. We have been careful to distribute StreetZones around the city so that SPPs aren’t in competition with each other and also so there is no clash with other street paper vendors.
Our SPPs are advised to sell StreetWise passively. The last thing we want is for the general public to feel like they are running a gauntlet. There is nothing more off-putting than having someone dive at you, waving their wears and causing you to have to literally take a diversion to avoid being accosted.
We would rather you buy StreetWise because you want to and because you want to give genuinely homeless people a sporting chance to build something for themselves.
We have now signed up over 30 homeless individuals. Their photos and locations can be found on our www.facebook.com/wearestreetwise
