Money Saving Expert
Martin Lewis is the most trusted voice in the UK, helping people skill up financially as the cost of living crisis bites. He talks to us about how he found himself in a bizarre position – the unofficial Shadow Chancellor, perhaps the most influential man in the country. We also hear from people struggling to cope as food and energy prices spiral.

Cashless landmark
We hit a milestone as 1000 of our vendors are now able to take cashless payments. And the process is becoming easier through a new initiative from PayPal Zettle’s Tap To Pay system that will help more sellers adapt to our cashless society.

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.
