The Big Issue Cymru

The Big Issue Cymru is a quality current affairs, arts and entertainment magazine sold by homeless or vulnerably housed people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1 and sell it for £2. Homelessness is not uncommon for ex-service personnel and The Big Issue Cymru is able to offer an opportunity to people affected. We aim to help those who are struggling by providing them with the means to earn a legitimate income to help them get back on their feet.

At The Big Issue Cymru we can offer support through our Vendor Services who assist with housing, benefits, addictions, and general needs. We also provide sales training to all vendors with the aim of developing skills and moving onto further employment. At The Big Issue Cymru we work very hard at building vendor’s confidence and helping them to regain self worth, and work towards self-sufficiency. Read Brian’s Story at
