The Vegan Society Local and Group Contacts

Get in touch with vegans near you – for information, socialising, mutual support and more. Our Local Contacts will be glad to hear from you.

Local Contacts are Vegan Society members who volunteer as ‘points of contact’ for vegans. Some Contacts run local groups, as listed here, many of which hold regular activities – please contact them to find out more. Some events are listed on our events calendar.

Veg*n = vegan and vegetarian.

In this list you can often click on a Contact to send them an email. If emails and phone numbers are not convenient for you please write to us at the office and we can pass your message on. Please include an SAE.

Local Contacts are not official representatives of the Vegan Society, and their levels of activity and knowledge vary according to individual circumstances.

Want to become a Local or Group Contact?

Once you’ve been a full member of the Vegan Society for six months, why not email us to ask about becoming a Local or Group Contact?
