Alex Horne, creator of hit TV show Taskmaster, has set Big Issue readers a special challenge. Buying the magazine is the easiest thing in the world, he says, so now you have to encourage as many people as possible to go out and get their own copy. Time starts as soon as the magazine hits the streets on Monday!

Furlough is ending, what next?
Continuing our RORA campaign to help safeguard people’s jobs and livelihoods, we offer advice to people who may find themselves in a precarious position.

- The Covid crisis is a crisis of care, say the Care Collective, who have collectively written a piece explaining why they have put together a Care Manifesto
- This week’s Letter To My Younger Self is frequent period drama star Rupert Graves. When thinking about the upcoming interview, and how he wished he could give his troubled younger self some helpful advice, he literally saw a poster at a railway station saying ‘Help is out there Rupert’, pointing out that Rupert isn’t exactly a common name. Strange but true.

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.
