Organisations Signspeed Supports
Signspeed’s wacky toilet area is adorned with many pointless, risqué and funny signs… but 2.3 billion people don’t have a loo – so we’ve twinned ours to help flush away poverty: www.toilettwinning.org
Signspeed’s is toilet twinned with Kabaya, North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Greenacres shops dotted around the county are a vital revenue builder to help this brilliant local charity.
During 2019 we will continue to roll out the shop re-brand. Their fresh new look has helped build support. We’ve competed Narberth and Pembroke Dock, we’re looking forward to Haverfordwest and Milford Haven – watch this space!
THE BIG ISSUE – BIG LIST
The Big Issue exists to dismantle poverty by creating opportunities to homeless people, or individuals at risk of homelessness. It gprovides a way to earn a legitimate income, thereby helping people to reintegrate into mainstream society. It is the world's most widely circulated street newspaper (Circulation 83,073
A Hand Up not a Hand Out: Vendors buy The Big Issue magazine for £1.25 and sell it for £2.50: each seller is a micro-entrepreneur who is working, not begging. So it's vitally important that buyers take their copy of the magazine when they pay for it. Why wouldn't you? - it's a great read.
The Big Issue Foundation is a financially independent charity which helps vendors move forward and has grants available to help them do just that. Over the last 12 months over 1050 Big Issue vendors have been given support to become financially independent and successfully start re-integrating into mainstream society.
