The difference you will make
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. As well as buying directly from a vendor, there are many other ways you can support The Big Issue.
