The Big Issue is a non-religious, non-for-profit social enterprise that supports individuals experiencing homelessness, marginalisation and disadvantage. The Big Issue run The Big Issue Challenge which is a half-day experience connected to their Big Issue magazine initiative.

It is an opportunity for staff engagement, volunteering and team building while being in the shoes of the vendors. The teams will travel via train to vendor locations from the Redfern train station into the Sydney CBD.
