Give a hand up not a hand out!

The resilience it takes to be a Big Issue vendor, combined with the targeted support the Foundation provides, empowers vendors with the skills to help rebuild their lives. A gift today will help secure a better future for some of the most vulnerable members of our society.

The Big Issue Foundation works with 2,000 Big Issue vendors each year, many of whom suffer from social and financial exclusion. Some have experienced homelessness, total relationship breakdown, physical and mental health problems as well as addictions, long-term unemployment, disrupted education and trauma.

The current climate makes vendors like me particularly vulnerable. Between 2010 and 2015, bed spaces in homeless accommodation projects fell by 16%, with 41% of homeless accommodation projects seeing a reduction in funding.

Your gift can change the life of a Big Issue vendor today. Thank you for your support.
