If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, or happening in politics, who you gonna call? The Big Issue!

No trick, we give readers a treat with this week’s magazine. Inside Ken Loach tells us about how economic problems aren’t evidence of capitalism failing, but instead demonstrating capitalism in action. His new film Sorry We Missed You is out next Friday.

Last year, The Big Issue organised a meeting between Jacqueline Wilson and young care-experienced kids. They expressed disappointment that Tracy Beaker grew up to be a young single mother living on a council estate. Their desire to see Tracy have the happy ending they all hoped for inspired Wilson’s new book, which is dedicated to these children and the multi-million selling author writes about how the Big Issue article influenced her storytelling.

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.
