Kevin Gopal, Editor, The Big Issue In The North

The Big Issue in the North is a weekly magazine sold by homeless people and those without any other means of earning an income. Our patch is the North West and Yorkshire and Humber, and we celebrate its talent from the worlds of arts, entertainment, activism, sport and more – during the Hannah launch and throughout the year. We’re committed to exploring ways to help the north flourish, with articles on critically important topics such as HS2 and fracking. And by doing so, we give a hand up to some of the most marginalised people in the area.
