In Australia, over 105,000 are without safe, secure or affordable housing. (Source: 2011 Census) Since its launch in 1996 The Big Issue Street Magazine Enterprise has recruited, trained and supported around 3,000 homeless and marginalised people across Australia. The Big Issue vendors in Australia have sold over 8 million magazines, with $16.2 million going into the pockets of Australia’s homeless and unemployed.

“[Selling The Big Issue magazine] keeps my mind active remembering all those faces... I don’t do it for the money, even though it keeps my pantry full – I make friends,” - Pat, Brisbane Vendor.
