How the world has changed

Earlier this year, David Attenborough told us all about his new film, A Life On Our Planet, which explores how the world has changed in the course of one single lifetime – little did we know how much the world would change in the next few weeks. In the magazine we revisit the interview, hear what Attenborough has to say about surviving the pandemic, and how it’s still possible to be hopeful about the future.

A walk on the wild side

A few years ago, Raynor Winn and her husband were evicted from their family home. With nowhere to stay, they decided to walk over 600 miles of the South West Coast Path. She emailed The Big Issue to tell us about her unique experience of homelessness and the rural poverty she had encountered. The article helped her get a book deal and The Salt Path has been in the bestselling charts since it was published. With the follow-up book, The Wild Silence, out this month, she writes again for us about the next step on her journey.

Lockdown with refugees

Peter Hanington opened his home to two Syrian refugees… then lockdown happened. He tells a story of finding friendship, family and a fresh appreciation for chickpeas.

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.
