The Big Issue

The Big Issue


The Big Issue is a UK-based street paper that supports the homeless, the vulnerably housed and those seeking to escape poverty. Vendors normally buy the magazine for £1.25 and sell to the public for £2.50. We are using Zinio digital editions to create additonal revenue opportunities to fund our street-based and pastoral care services for our vendors. We are a social enterprise company and all revenues go to support the vulnerable communities we serve. Our goal is to move our vendors away from dependency and towards full time employment

01 Get on the page with Picasso’s love of paper Whether Pablo Picasso was drawing on it, tearing it, burning it or making it three-dimensional, through experiments with everything from newsprint and napkins to wallpaper, many of his finest works began with humble bits of pulped tree. The Royal Academy’s new exhibition Picasso and Paper explores the Spanish surrealist’s passion for paper – through 300 works from embryonic studies for Guernica to a 4.8m-wide collage. Royal Academy, London, January 25-April 13; royalacademy.org.uk/exhibition/ picasso-and-paper 02 Shop for a self-cleaning hoodie and help the homeless It sounds too good to be true – especially to those prone to spillages – but the Hope Hoodie is made from an innovative fabric that repels dirt, liquid and stains, according to its makers. It’s ideal for people on the…

The icing on the cake As a long-time Big Issue reader and now living in Redhill, I have struck up a friendship with Vanessa who has a pitch in the town centre. A few days before Christmas I happened to give her a Christmas card. I had not been feeling very Christmassy at all and I thought that giving a card to somebody who might not expect one might make and them feel a bit more festive. A few days later on Christmas Eve as I was rushing around buying a few bits when she called me over. “I wanted to see you today,” she said. She went over to her bag and pulled out a box containing...a chocolate cake! Which she then presented to me!!”Happy Christmas!” she said. I hugged…

challenge empty bluster

Christmas is a busy time for The Big Issue. Don’t stop reading. I’ll stop saying Christmas shortly. Not yet, though. At Christmas, we welcome new readers who may not be with us at all other times of the year. We see an increase in vendor numbers. There is a greater likelihood of people buying The Big Issue. This Christmas was a belter. We don’t often talk about sales. It’s a curious thing to do, and, obviously, nobody is keen to do it when the figures are not great. But it’s worth noting for a few reasons. The first is the scale of the sales. In little over a week, we sold 335,603 copies of The Big Issue Big Christmas special. This is up eight per cent on the previous year. Our…

First-ever Children’s Food Insecurity Summit is ‘turning point’ in ending hunger Big Issue Changemakers played a central role in the first-ever London Children’s Food Insecurity Summit as campaigners and kids called on those in power to ensure every child can access a healthy diet. A new briefing, based on figures from the Greater London Authority, revealed that 400,000 children in London experience food insecurity, while it is the reality for 1.5 million adults in the English capital too. Last week, young representatives of the Children’s #Right2Food Campaign proposed a new independent Children’s Food Watchdog as well as asking for the introduction of universal free school meals which, for the first time, would include children in families with no recourse to public funds. The charter also takes the crucial step of asking for statutory funding…

soup bike start-up ‘like the big issue but tastier’

A social enterprise has bowled us over by vowing to name a soup after The Big issue. Jonny Wright and Stu Trewhella are in the process of setting up Soupahero – a start-up that will see homeless people employed to sell soup from a specially made bike. The duo, who both work in TV, cheekily suggested to potential donors “think The Big Issue, but tastier” in an online fundraiser that raised £3,000 in just 14 days before the new year. Wright and Trewhella are now in the process of buying their first bike and experimenting with flavours for their vegetable soups, and even plan to acknowledge their inspiration by naming one after The Big Issue. “The support that we have received has kind of blown us away a little bit,” Trewhella told The Big…

does going to the cinema count as a light workout?

HOW IT WAS TOLD It’s January, the pressure to shed the Christmas pounds is overwhelming and the cinema offers a sanctuary from the terrible weather. But could it bring even more than that to the party (a good film aside)? Could it even help you shift the weight and improve your physical health? In a plot twist fit for any blockbuster flick, reports in various UK media outlets last week suggested that going to the cinema could be counted as a light workout. Mail Online kicked things off with the headline: “Sitting in the cinema ‘counts as a light workout’ because getting immersed in a film speeds up your heart rate, scientists find”. That, more or less, set the tone for the rest of the reports with Yahoo!, the Evening Standard, The Times and Metro…
