Discover the stories creating real change in local communities with Street News. Street News is filled with impactful analysis and authentic stories, regularly updated and written by the people at the heart of the issues.
Our unique platform amplifies previously unheard and marginalised voices, making a real difference to our contributors and the work that they do.
Street News is a Big Issue North publication and part of the international street paper movement. Many of the voices on Street News stem from those street papers.
Our news app is free to download, giving you access to a vast range of information – with articles covering equality, housing, health, immigration, climate change and much more.

ABOUT STREET NEWS AND BIG ISSUE NORTH
Big Issue North produces a wide range of socially conscious media content, including a weekly magazine sold by people in the north of England with few other means of earning an income. Our team supports vendors to change their lives and achieve their goals.
In order to further support our vendors, and those working for street papers around the world, we created Street News – a mobile solution that amplifies the voices of marginalised communities, giving them a share of the spotlight they don’t normally receive. All income created by your Street News membership goes back into supporting street paper vendors.
We have worked in conjunction with the International Network of Street Papers (INSP), a media organisation and support body for street papers like us across the world. For more information about INSP, visit insp.ngo.
Together, we can make an impact.
* Street News Membership is an auto-renewing subscription of £4.99 per month (free for the first month) and your payment will be processed by Apple.
