'Big Issue' Foundation
Registered Charity Number: 1049077
The Big Issue offers people who are homeless the opportunity to earn their own money; a livelihood. The Big Issue Foundation offers vendors the opportunity of a life. We work tirelessly alongside our vendors to help them deal with the issues that have caused their homelessness or have developed as a result of hitting the streets.
It can be as little as 12 months from a significant life event to losing everything and arriving on the street. Last year alone we worked with over 2500 individuals enabling people who are homeless to take control of their lives. Last year alone we worked with over 2,200 individuals, enabling people who are homeless to take control of their lives.
Nearly 100 people a week turn to the Big Issue for an opportunity to help themselves at a time of utter personal crisis. We work with some of the most disadvantaged and excluded individuals in the land; people who have lost more than it is comfortable to imagine, their homes, their families and their sense of themselves in the world. We urgently need to offer more support and hope for the future.
The Big Issue Foundationís mission as a UK charity for people who are homeless, is 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.
