Support The Big Issue Today

For our street vendors, whose only income comes from selling The Big Issue magazine, the Government lockdown due to COVID-19 is devastating both financially and emotionally. Many of our vendors are homeless and living in very vulnerable circumstances. We have had to adapt quickly to find new and innovative ways to generate support for the most vulnerable in society. We need your urgent help to ensure vendors have ongoing access to support from The Big Issue now and in the future, so 50% of net proceeds of these new initiatives, will go to vendors. To find out more about how we are supporting vendors through this crisis, please click here.
