The Big Issue mission is to dismantle poverty by creating opportunity through self-help, social trading and business solutions - a hand up, not a hand out. We provide an access to all means for people to earn a legitimate source of income, to raise their self-esteem and to take control of their lives. One of the ways we do this is through supporting vendors to sell The Big Issue magazine. Last year alone, we put £5.5m in the pockets of our vendors, releasing them from a dependency on hand outs.
The Big Issue Foundation supports vendors (and increasingly others) with wrap around support- health, housing, debt, addiction, mental health, financial inclusion, and employability. We do this by connecting vendors with the vital support services, personal solutions, Big Issue programmes and employment pathways, that enable them to rebuild their lives and determine their own futures - welcome to our community.
The role is responsible for changing lives through outreach support, connecting vendors with their communities and supporting their wellbeing and employability. Youll work directly alongside vendors (and potentially others as a new Big Issue social enterprise models develop) to support and empower them to find their own solutions to improve their lifestyle and their opportunities.
