Milestone extends Passion project with magazine purchase

Media and technology specialist Milestone Group (LON:MSG) has bolstered its youth engagement Passion programme with the purchase of Disorder UK Magazine.

The magazine, bought for a £1, involves unemployed young creatives in every aspect of its production - from fashion shoots to interviewing bands and writing features on film and technology.

It offers training programmes and has successfully trained 360 young people to a BTEC qualification level with over 68% of them being in sustainable employment after 12 months.

In 2011, an article in the Guardian said Disorder was "the best youth publication in the UK, highlighted Milestone.

As part of the agreement,  Davide Wheller, the magazine's original founder, will join the Milestone team as the magazine's executive editor and will liaise closely with Milestone subsidiary Relative, to develop a digital offering to complement the print version.

Anthony Webb, who joined Milestone this month, will help expand and commercialise the magazine and the brand, the firm added.

He is is well versed in the marketing, brand development and digital marketplace and is credited with being part of the team that helped build Rio Ferdinand's No 5 magazine into one of the worlds most successful multi-platform publications.
