The Archbishop and The Big Issue
Our vendor Lee Welham recently struck up a friendship with Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby – and hatched a plan to get him to don a tabard and go unannounced among his flock to get an insight into life as a vendor: “It really struck me that people weren’t looking me in the eye, people were head down, I could see people crossing the road,” he says. “But when someone did buy a magazine it felt good.”

Stay tuned for more on bigissue.com and a video from the day coming soon. All credit to Lee who put this all together.

Windrush and toppling statues
As the culture wars rage on, debate has its place, says Sir Geoff Palmer but as the country wrestles with its sense of identity, some voices must carry more weight. We also find out ahead of Windrush Day what happened to the promise to compensate those wrongly caught up in the scandal to deport legitimate British residents.

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.50 and sell it on to the public for £3.00, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
