We work with some of the most socially & financially excluded people in our Country, people who have made the positive decision to start their own business at a time of often deep personal crisis. Last year our services team worked with over 2200 Big Issue Vendors, achieving over 27,000 service contacts & more than 5800 positive outcomes, a record breaking year of achievements for Big Issue Vendors. The average fully cost recovered price per outcome fell to just £150, representing exceptional value for money in an increasingly complex environment.
Each step that each vendor takes in their journey away from homelessness represents a huge achievement. Here are some highlights from our frontline team from last year.
