Stop Mass Homelessness
The Big Issue was launched 30 years ago to tackle the homelessness crisis. Today, a global pandemic has made the issue of homelessness bigger than ever. Hundreds of thousands of households are at risk right now – that’s why we’re launching a campaign to prevent the immediate threat of mass homelessness and invest in plans to protect future generations. Find out more about our nine-point plan in this week’s magazine.

And alongside the new campaign in this bumper edition, we look at different aspects of the housing crisis. Architect and presenter George Clarke explains what he’d do if he was Housing Minister, we investigate how the ongoing cladding scandal is impacting the availability of affordable housing, we explain why Housing First is the radical approach to tackle homelessness that works and more…

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.
