Information booklets

The Vegetarian Society is a registered educational charity and all our activities focus on promoting better knowledge and understanding of vegetarianism. We do not receive any government funding, so we rely heavily on membership fees and donations.

We have a wide variety of resources from information booklets and recipes to campaign posters and postcards. We have now introduced a small fee for selected resource packs and individual items to help cover our costs.

All online resources, however, are still available to download free of charge.

If you are a local group contact, teacher, caterer, health worker, or feel you are unable to pay due to personal financial circumstances, then please contact us on or 0161 925 2000.


Please allow at least a week for your order to be processed. If your order is urgent please call us on 0161 925 2000 and we will do our best to get it to you sooner.
