Homelessness: What’s really going on?

Posted on: Wed 11 Apr 2018

The Big Issue started 22 years ago with a plan to help tackle homelessness.

Since the publication of their first magazine their goal has been to provide the people who sell The Big Issue with an income, a means for them to fight their way back into society and to give their vendors a voice.

22 years on, they still have homelessness at the top of their priorities.

The latest edition is a special report on homelessness and asks: what’s really going on?
