As the weather gets colder, we, as a society, tend to become more aware of rough sleepers and those with unstable shelter. We often are asked how people can support Big Issue vendors during the winter period, the answer is simple, buy a magazine. By taking the magazine, you’re helping them to earn a living. Chat for a while too.
But of course not everyone in poverty or homeless is selling the Big Issue magazine, so there are other important ways you can make a difference.
