The Big Issue Challenge


Looking for a corporate team-building activity that makes a real difference? The Big Issue has the perfect Challenge for you!

The Big Issue Challenge tests creativity, challenges unconscious bias and promotes diversity and inclusion as teams hit the streets to help Big Issue vendors.

Along with having a direct, immediate impact on the lives of street vendors, you will come away from the Challenge with greater empathy, resilience and other real-world skills that can’t be learnt at a desk.

Take on the Challenge 

  • Learn about homelessness from a guest speaker with first-hand insight
  • In teams, hit the streets and put your ingenuity and resilience to the test as you support your local Big Issue vendor
  • Step outside your comfort zone while selling The Big Issue magazine
  • Raise awareness of homelessness and disadvantage in your community
