The missing 1.2 million workers
If the pandemic hadn’t come along, over a million more people would be in the labour market at the moment. So where did they go? We take a look at the phenomenon dubbed The Great Resignation to find out how after a period of reflection, the world of work is changing for good.

Martin Freeman
In new series The Responder, Martin Freeman plays a Liverpudlian frontline police officer whose mental health has taken a downturn. He explains how the themes of poverty and depression are drawn from real-life experiences.

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.
