The Big Issue exists to create opportunity for the most vulnerable and marginalised people in the UK to improve their lives. In 2020, the world changed significantly and life has not returned to normal. Our vendors need your support more than ever and our mission is more important and more challenging than it has been in our 30-year history. We rely on the generosity of the public and are calling for support, to help those that need us now and the many that will in the future.

The Big Issue is one of Britain’s leading news and cultural titles. Every week’s edition is packed full of original takes on the biggest issues of the day as well as interviews with the most significant figures in politics and entertainment.

Every subscription purchase goes towards supporting The Big Issue’s mission to help the most vulnerable people in the UK to improve their lives.

As a social enterprise, we invest every penny we make back into the organisation. That means that with every subscription, we are supporting people in poverty to get back on their own two feet. With your support, we help vendors to achieve financial stability and overcome social disadvantages holding them back.

The Big Issue has helped me get clothes and helped me get rehoused since I got back to Bournemouth after leaving Newquay. I’m thankful.
