What we do

Big Issue Foundation is the charitable arm of Big Issue Group. We work with Big Issue vendors to support them with the issues that may have brought them to the Big Issue in the first place. We provide vital wraparound support connecting vendors to critical services that enable them to find a sustainable pathway out of poverty to a better future. We provide support in key areas including housing, finances, health and education.
