Don’t panic! The Big Issue is here to maintain the status quo

As the nation cowers under a Brexit nervous breakdown, we have solutions. And the solution is always, ALWAYS The Big Issue.

Inside this week

-Maintain the Status Quo – Letter To My Younger Self with the don of denim Francis Rossi
Pint? Pub landlord on his part in our downfall, and his new band of brothers FAT COPS

-This week’s Changemaker is the righteous Sarah Burrows. Head of Children Heard and Seen she is working for children of prisoners. ‘They didn’t have anywhere to go that was free from judgement’, she says

-Investigation by Liam Geraghty into modern slavery in Britain – and what The Big Issue is doing about it.

-A few months ago. Emma Thompson wrote to Wendy Mitchell about Mitchell’s open and moving account of living with early onset dementia. This week, Wendy replies to Emma through The Big Issue. It’s a brilliant and moving piece.

-Where’s Churchill now, asks John Bird in his weekly column

-The magazine is opened and closed by Dodge Dawson, a vendor at Hackney Downs. It’s very honest interview about life as a recovering alcoholic

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 £1.25 and sell it on to the public for £2.50, 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.
