Overview

 

Do you want to take part in vegan volunteering around your local area?

You can do that – right here at The Vegan Society.

We have an ever-growing Community Network of vegans just like you, who have a passion to volunteer and promote veganism where they live.

Every month, our Network choose from a range of outreach tasks. These could include town centre stalls, writing to a councillor or MP, sharing our campaigns on social media or contacting local businesses. You’re in control of how much or how little you do.

We also provide our volunteers with leaflets, banners and workshops so that they are equipped to make the biggest impact possible.

Want more details about volunteering in your local community?

Our volunteer Community Network is packed with people who care about The Vegan Society mission – to make it easier for more people to go vegan and stay vegan. We believe that it’s crucial for vegans to be well supported by the right legislation, the right options and the right agricultural systems.

Within our Community Network, we have two roles:

  • Organiser
  • Advocate

As an Organiser, you would be the caretaker of your local area. This is so rewarding! Tasks would be emailed to you directly every month by our Volunteering Coordinator, who would be your main point of contact here at The Vegan Society. It would then be your job to send out the task to Advocates in your local area and get feedback from them. You’ll also be able to ask your Advocates for help with any stalls and lobbying. Every Organiser receives an outreach pack, including a table runner, leaflets and banners. We make sure you are fully supported with an Organisers’ WhatsApp group for socialising and ideas. We also have a monthly gathering on video.

Here are some words from our wonderful Wyre Forest Organiser, Ronnie:

“We need to educate as many people as possible to become vegan. I hope to encourage as many vegans as possible to become involved in vegan outreach.”

About The Vegan Society

What do we want? Simple: a world where humans do not exploit non-human animals. A world where animals are free to exist in their own right. We promote a lifestyle that excludes, as far as possible and practical, all forms of exploitation of - and cruelty to - animals for the purposes of food, clothing or anything else.

We also want a just world for humans. A world where resources are utilised in a sustainable way to ensure all current and future generations are provided for - a world where no one goes hungry. At the heart of the sustainability and food justice agenda is plant-based food production and consumption: veganism.
