WHAT DOES APRIL 12TH MEAN TO YOU?

For our vendors, The Big Issue has always been ‘a hand up, not a hand out’. But under lockdown and for the first time in our history, we had to rely on online sales and public donations to support them.

As the national lockdown begins to lift, Big Issue vendors finally have the chance to regain their independence, reconnect with society and reclaim their place on the high street. To find out how much it means to them, watch our video.

Big Issue vendors are some of the most vulnerable members of our society

But at the same time, they are micro-entrepreneurs. By supporting their business, you can help them overcome homelessness, financial instability and other social disadvantages that hold them back.
