Get involved with: The Vegan Society


What are they all about?

Since Donald Watson founded The Vegan Society in 1944, volunteers have played a vital role in getting us to where we are today. From the streets to the spreadsheets, volunteers enable key projects and messages to get out in to the world, and so allow our work to keep growing. There are a range of ways you can get involved, whether you have 20 or 2 hours a month. We’re really proud of our volunteers, and love to shout about how great they are at every chance we get.

What’s volunteering like?

The practicalities of volunteering ranges from role to role, but regardless of what you’re doing, volunteering with us will always be meaningful, enjoyable, and well supported. Every project you ever work on will hold value to the charity’s work, and will feed in to the future of veganism. You’ll always be given what you need, and you’ll never be alone (unless you want to be!). Our volunteers usually work in teams, either with other volunteers or with staff, so you’ll be able to meet other vegans who care about the same things that you do. We have a monthly newsletter, so you’ll always be kept in the loop about what’s coming up, and what’s going on now. Along with all this, you’ll have a great time developing your skills and spreading the word about why everyone should be vegan, and stay vegan.

How can I volunteer?

Our volunteering happens in three camps. We have our office volunteer team (working at our Birmingham based Vegan HQ supporting general office duties), our specialist volunteers (lending their skills in various areas to support our work, spread out across the world), and finally our Community Network, launching summer 2019. The community network spans the UK, engaging local communities to learn more about The Vegan Society and veganism. To find out more, check out the detailed web pages below.

How to apply

If you see a role that you're interested in, you can submit your application via our online form. From there, we will aim to reveiw your application within 5 working days, and get back to you to explain any next steps.

    Always ask for vegan options when you're eating out, walking by a restaurant, store, or bar. Even if you already know that they don't have vegan options, asking creates a demand for it.

    Buy vegan-friendly stickers and place them on walls, lamp poles, & other public areas. You can also attach QR code stickers on meat products. Please respect local laws! Find stickers.
  • 3
    Move bookstore cookbooks so that plant-friendly recipes have more exposure near meat-based recipe books. Please be respectful and ask these stores first if you can rearrange them!
