COVID-19 UPDATE from The Big Issue
We understand that these are uncertain times and many of you will be worried. Our priority is to work collectively with other social investors to help you where we can. This is why we have put in place a range of measures to support you, if you’re experiencing difficulties as a result of the outbreak:
If you are a new or existing customer and you think you may need support or flexibility, please feel free to call us on our dedicated Big Issue Invest helpline - 07506336535.
For The Big Issue and its vendors, the next 12 weeks will be incredibly tough.
As the number of people impacted by Coronavirus continues to escalate, The Big Issue has taken the decision to safeguard its network of vendors by asking that they stop selling on streets across the whole of the UK with immediate effect. We need your help to ensure they have ongoing access to support from The Big Issue at this extremely difficult time.
You can now support The Big Issue in 3 ways. Please give what you can:
Take up our special 12-week subscription and have the magazine delivered right to your door, every week.
Order this week’s mag from our shop or download it online.
Or if you prefer, make a specific financial contribution to The Big Issue.
Your money will go to support Big Issue vendors in the following ways: If you make a financial contribution to us, 50% of the money will go to supporting our vendors and 50% will go The Big Issue. On any magazines and subscription purchases, 50% of net proceeds will go to supporting vendors and 50% will go to the Big Issue.
Please help us to spread the word and share your support for The Big Issue and our sellers by sharing our social media content on your channels.
