As Wimbledon gets underway and Andy Murray sets about defending his title, Judy Murray gives a candid interview in this week's Letter to My Younger Self. The inspirational matriarch discusses her regrets about not pursuing a tennis-playing career, dealing with media criticism, the effects of her sons' success upon Dunblane – and getting "all glammed-up" for Strictly Come Dancing.

Jeremy Corbyn. The Labour leader was a big hit at Glastonbury, and his popularity continues to grow. How did this happen? Adrian Lobb examines the rise of the MP for Islington North, and also reveals the educators, campaigners and pundits who are energising a new generation for the Left in Britain.

Car Park Culture. Can art really thrive in a multi-storey car park? Adam Forrest discovers creativity amidst the concrete...

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.
