The Big Issue is made up of thousands of individuals, all united by their desire to try to help themselves, no matter what hardships they have endured along the way. Every vendor has their own story to tell. These short films provide compelling insights into the lives of vendors throughout the UK. The Big Issue Foundation strives to support 2,500 vendors across the country. We urgently need to offer more support and hope for the future.
