Local Contacts for the Vegetarian Society
Please remember that all groups are run by volunteers and are entirely self-funded. They generally welcome enquiries from individuals interested in joining their group or attending an event, or enquiries about local vegetarian facilities.
Our printed materials are kept in our head office, so if you are looking for our printed materials, please order them from the resources pages rather than asking a local contact to post them to you.
If you have any general or technical enquiries please contact our Enquiries and Advocacy Service via firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that local groups' views are their own and not representative of the Vegetarian Society. For all media enquiries please contact our Communications team via 0161 925 2000 or email@example.com
Students looking for help with course work on vegetarianism can find information here.
If you wish to circulate news of a relevant event please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can pass it on via our newsletter or e-list.
