Our annual Big Issue Changemakers list this year celebrates 100 of those who gave us reason to hope in 2021. We believe they will play an important role in making sure society in 2022 benefits everyone.

We’re hailing the innovators and agitators who believe no one should live in poverty. We’re celebrating the individuals and organisations who look out for the less fortunate, not through any desire for praise but because they recognise an essential need.

Our list has many names of people and grassroots organisations who are quietly making their communities better, and who are deserving of so much praise. We also look to the experts and professionals who have used their resources to lift others up.

At any point, settling on just 100 people and organisations is not easy. And we know that we may have overlooked much valuable work. We welcome you telling us who else we should celebrate. We’ll be happy to celebrate them.

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.
