Our work

Hero image

Each week, around 250 people sell Big Issue North, visiting our regional offices to buy the magazine for £1.25 before selling it on the streets for £2.50.

Additionally, through the Big Issue North Trust, our vendors are given additional support to make positive changes, with staff offering advice and help with anything from developing their skills or accessing English language courses, to getting housing, financial or health advice, which can help them achieve their goals and improve their lives for good.

As a registered charity, the Big Issue North Trust also raises funds to provide a range of support for sellers including support accessing services, help getting ID, home furnishing packages and projects such as breakfast clubs.

In order to demonstrate our impact, we produce annual reports and vendor audits, alongside our regular quarterly Friends of Big Issue newsletter, which you can subscribe to below.
