George Michael
In 1996, George Michael bared his soul to us in an exclusive interview, beginning a close friendship with The Big Issue. As a classic album is reissued and film hits the cinema, we look back on that relationship and offer a glimpse into some rarely seen images of the much-missed music icon.

Grenfell remembered
Five years after tragedy took 72 lives, we take a look at what’s changed – and what still needs to change – speaking to survivors, members of the community and reporting on the ongoing inquiry.

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.
