Selling advertising in a not for profit magazine..

I work for a registered charity and Volunteer Centre in Scotland. Last year locally we launched a not-for-profit Youth lifestyle magazine that created an opportunity for young people in Scotland to volunteer/write for a publication that they could call their own. Although initially launched locally it has been well received not only in our area bit throughout Scotland with us creating good links with some important groups including Young Scot, The Scottish Youth Parliament and has seen volunteers from all over the country contribute to the publication.

With an initial run of 2500 we have just done a national pilot of 6500 but our target is to have a circulation of 25000 per quarter.

It is currently distributed through schools, colleges, universities, local volunteer centres, youth groups etc.

As a not for profit magazine we only need enough funds to cover the printing costs and distribution as all of the people working on the publication are volunteers however with us not having a sales team I am finding selling advertising within the publication very hard as it is not my background.

Does anyone have any advice or know of any companies within Scotland that sell advertising on a commision base?
