The Big Issue has launched an appeal for the public to help its vendors, who are facing ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, severe weather warnings and predictions of large-scale absenteeism at workplaces.

Lord Bird, who founded the magazine, said there are “challenging times” ahead for the organisation and its 1,800-strong vendor network.

He said: “January is always a difficult time, but with continued restrictions in place, meaning many people are still working from home, coupled with the Government warning that we may see up to a quarter of workers being off work due to high Covid levels in the population, our vendors urgently need support.”

Lord Bird urged the public to buy the magazine from a local vendor, take out a subscription, or donate to the magazine’s Winter Appeal.

He added: “Big Issue vendors can’t work from home and, with severe weather warnings on the cards, they face a very tough and uncertain winter.”
