Whilst continuing to translate and distribute Bibles worldwide, Bible Society is also working to make the bible heard in our own culture in England and Wales, where the bible has virtually disappeared from the day-to-day reality of people's lives. We work with global alliance of supporters, churches and over 130 Bible Societies around the world.

Big Issue North is a weekly magazine that is sold by people who have limited other ways of earning an income in the North West and Yorkshire and the Humber. Vendors buy magazines for £1.50 before selling them on the streets for £3, keeping the £1.50 profit they make from each sale. As well as selling the magazine, our vendors are supported by staff with anything from developing their skills or accessing English language courses, to securing housing or new employment, to support with their finances or health and wellbeing, including addiction support.
