After a three-month break due to COVID-19, Big Issue vendors will be hitting the streets once again on Monday, June 29.
It means vendors can return to earning a meaningful income and reconnect with their community.
The Sydney Swans are proud to support the Big Issue, an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting and empowering people experiencing homelessness, marginalisation and disadvantage.
The return to selling will see the implementation of new COVID-safe measures to ensure the health and wellbeing of vendors, customers and the broader community.
The measures include new uniforms, digital payment devices, COVID-safe training and updated health and safety practices for all vendors.
If you see a Big Issue vendor in their fluoro vest selling their much-loved magazine on a street corner, we encourage you to purchase a copy – the support will be greatly appreciated and help those who are especially vulnerable during this challenging time.
