The Big Issue is a non-profit nongovernmental organisation (NGO) and Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) that publishes a general interest monthly magazine which focuses on the big social issues of the day. The vendors who sell the magazine are self-employed micro-retailers.

Our Social Development Programme provides vendor support including vocational, life and business skills training and guidance counselling.
