About Us

We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting and creating job opportunities for homeless, marginalised and disadvantaged people. Simply put, we help people help themselves.

We do this by through social enterprises to create employment for people who are unable to access mainstream jobs. These enterprises operate much like traditional businesses, except all revenue is put back into the enterprises for the benefit of the individuals involved and broader community. In Brisbane we sell The Big Issue - a fortnightly magazine, sold on the street by our contracted vendors. the vendors earn $3.00 for every copy sold.
