Street papers are independent newspapers and magazines that operate on a social enterprise model to empower people living in poverty.

In the last year, 20 million street papers were sold across the world and vendors earned a grand total of £24 million.
An important source of independent media, street papers provide a unique platform for alternative perspectives and unheard voices and report on issues of social justice. INSP is made up of over 100 street papers in 34 countries, published in 24 languages. Our street paper network speaks to 5 million readers worldwide.
