Claudia Winkleman
For light entertainment, Strictly Come Dancing is doing a lot of heavy lifting. Not only raising the mood of the country but being a beacon of inclusivity and diversity. Co-host Claudia Winkleman tells us how the show has evolved into gently progressive public service broadcasting. What a way to open our run of bumper Christmas editions!

Stop Mass Homelessness
The Big Issue’s Stop Mass Homelessness campaign was launched in the summer when we could see a storm coming. Falling Covid-19 support now risks homelessness on a scale we’ve never seen before. This week we explain how the government could save £2.2 billion – rather than waiting for people to become homeless, prevent them from doing so in the first place.

Winning the lottery of life
Five years ago, Matt Callanan thought he’d won the lottery. He hadn’t – but after buying The Big Issue he discovered a much greater jackpot….

Matt Haig
For many, Christmas isn’t all joy and sparkle. Bestselling author Matt Haig explains how to cope with mental health problems and how his own experiences fed into a kids book turned film adaptation, A Boy Called Christmas.

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.
