Big Issue North is part of the Big Life group – a network of charities, social enterprises and schools operating across areas including skills and employment, health and wellbeing, and children and families. It works across the north, with key hubs in Manchester and Liverpool.

Big Life Liverpool comprises Big Issue North’s Liverpool office, as well as Community Voice, which helps people engaged with drug and alcohol services to communicate with service providers, and Big Life Homes, which helps people out of homelessness and into affordable supported accommodation.

Last month, it moved from office space on Parr Street to a new space on Lydia Ann Street. The new Big Life Liverpool Support Hub is more open, inviting all members of the local community to gather for free food and drinks and to socialise, as well as to access services, with a private room providing space for sensitive and confidential discussions.

Big Issue North was a weekly magazine sold by people who have limited other ways of earning an income in the north of England. Staff now contribute weekly content to The Big Issue, supporting vendors in the north, and run Street News.
