The Big Life Group is a United Kingdom-based collective of social businesses working to, in essence, create an environment in which those without access to resources and opportunity are able to receive them. As one of the largest social businesses in the UK, some of their initiatives include The Big Issue in the North, Big Life Centres, Big Life Employment, Aisha Childcare, Open Door and Self Help Services.
Through all of these projects, the mission stays the same. "We provide first class treatment to people who usually receive third class services," the social business writes on its website. "We give to the poor what the rich already have, by creating wealth and opportunity."
