The Big Issue Foundation Donation
The Big Issue offers people facing poverty and exclusion the opportunity to earn their own money; a livelihood.
We believe in a ‘hand up and not a hand out’ and recognise that earning an income is a key step in a person’s journey towards stability and a better life. Achieving something for yourself is 100% more empowering than having it done for you.
We work exclusively with Big Issue vendors, people who are excluded from mainstream society, financially impoverished and disadvantaged in multiple ways.
In the last decade we have achieved over 40,000 positive outcomes with our vendors alone, life improving steps one and all.
Your gift today will enable us to connect vendors with the vital support and personal solutions that enable them to rebuild their lives; to determine their own pathways to a better future.
“A hand up is what The Big Issue offers, helping me to be self sufficient and being the guiding light I needed”. Eliot Schofield, Big Issue Vendor
