The Big Issue

The last 12 months have been really tough for Big Issue vendors due to the lockdowns, reduced footfall on streets and of course the financial repercussions from not being able to sell the magazine themselves. The team at the Big Issue foundation and magazine have been inventive and swift acting throughout the pandemic, offering subscription services, apps, content streaming, full PPE for vendors, art auctions and partnering with other initiatives to maintain and create the revenue to support their vendors during this period.
With the lockdown easing hopefully we’ll see those red tabards out on the streets once more but until then, please subscribe to receive the magazine- you can even buy it directly from your favourite vendor on the interactive map on the app and online.
These are a few of the shoots I’vedone for them since last March.
