Dogs on the Street
Pets helped many people through lockdowns and for those experiencing homelessness, the relationship was more important than ever. We spent an afternoon with charity Dogs on the Street to discover how rough sleepers with dogs have navigated the pandemic.

45 years on the NHS frontline
Lee Pearson would say he’s an ordinary person, but that’s what makes him extraordinary. He’s spent 45 years working in hospitals and hospices and his story reflects that of thousands of men and women across the country tirelessly keeping the NHS going despite all the challenges it faces.

Frankie Dettori
He may have been saddled with a wild boy reputation, but the champion jockey says he’s always been a nice guy in a Letter To My Younger Self.

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.
