Local network

The Vegetarian Society has details of vegetarian groups Local Groups in many different parts of the country and many welcome new members. 

If you are new to vegetarianism, or just thinking about changing your diet, a local group can give you a lot of encouragement and moral support. They also have first-hand knowledge about where to eat out or shop for vegetarian products in your area.

The groups support our campaigns and projects, so if you are interested in promoting vegetarianism, you can make contact with like-minded people to share ideas and give vegetarians a louder voice. Most groups also organise social events throughout the year; they particularly seem to enjoy good food and good company. .

Local Network Update

Please note that we are currently reviewing our services to, and relationship with our local groups. Therefore we are not currently listing new groups on the local group pages until the new year. If you are interested joining a local group, you can check if there is a group in your local area here. However, if you do contact us, we can keep you updated on our progress.

To this end we are running a survey with our existing local groups to discuss how we can work together to shape the network, and how we can effectively support each other. Without the continued support of people all over the country we couldn't make the impact and changes that we all want to see in the world, be that for the animals, people or the planet.
