The Big Issue (VG)
About this volunteer-involving organisation
The Big Issue aims to achieve social change through self-help. It is:
• a social initiative that provides opportunities for vendors to earn money
• a Foundation that enables vulnerably housed people to access support services
• a media organisation that publishes a high-quality current affairs magazine.
Together, the Big Issue Company and Foundation strive to create opportunities for people facing homelessness to take greater control of their lives, and to campaign on behalf of and empower socially excluded people.
