The Big Issue Challenge

A corporate team-building experience that actively contributes to The Big Issue's mission.

Get your colleagues together and join us in helping people help themselves. The Big Issue Challenge tests your skills in resilience and creativity as you take to the streets alongside our vendors. Your task is simple: to help vendors sell as many magazines as possible. 

The Big Issue Challenge includes:

  • A unique experience on the streets with high social impact
  • Informative session with a representative from The Big Issue and a vendor
  • An inspiring team of vendors to work with on the street
  • All equipment and tools

This half-day experience is available for groups of up to 30, in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra.
