Local Charity Beneficiaries

  • The Big Issue Foundation

    "To complement the self-help ethos of The Big Issue magazine, The Big Issue Foundation was established in 1995 as an independently registered charity.

    We support Big Issue vendors to achieve financial stability through their magazine sales whilst helping them to overcome longstanding social disadvantages previously holding them back. All our beneficiaries are Big Issue vendors that buy magazines for £1.25 with their own money from official distribution points and sell them for £2.50 on a designated pitch.

    Our vision is to create opportunities that will end poverty and exclusion for Big Issue vendors and our mission is to connect Big Issue vendors to the vital support and specialist services that enable them to rebuild their lives and determine their own pathways to a better future. We currently support over 1,240 Big Issue vendors every year across London, the South Coast, Oxfordshire, the Midlands and the South West.

    The Big Issue Foundation generates money for its work through Individual Giving, Charitable Trusts and Foundations, Corporate Partnerships, and Vendor Day experiences – as well as flagship fundraising events such as The Big Night Walk and The Big Sleep Out.
