Founded in 2003, Social Spider is a not-for-profit organization that aims to use media to create positive change. Social Spider is a self-proclaimed social enterprise which works on specific projects in order to help clients get their purpose-driven mesage across. Current projects include A Better World, citizen journalism training, Walthamstow Now, Self Help Housing and Contrast Magazine. Its leading project is One in Four, which is a magazine aimed at people with mental health difficulties, and is meant to be bought as a bulk subscription so that social organizations can use it to reach the people they help.
The team consists of Development Director and One in Four Editor Mark Brown, Managing Director David Floyd and Non-Executive Director Neill Harvey-Smith. "Everything we do is about positive change," Social Spider outlines on its website. "We want to help people learn new skills or to engage with information and ideas that are useful to them."
