Vegan Community Advocate

Do you want to take part in vegan volunteering around your local area?

You can do that – right here at The Vegan Society.

We have an ever-growing Community Network of vegans just like you, who have a passion to volunteer and promote veganism where they live.

Every month, our Network choose from a range of outreach tasks.

  • These could include town centre stalls,
  • writing to a councillor or MP,
  • sharing our campaigns on social media or contacting local businesses.

You're in control of how much or how little you do.

Advocates are a crucial voice in their own community. They ensure that our campaign messages are spread far and wide.

They provide a strong vegan presence in local communities.

What does the Advocate role involve?

  • Being an Advocate for veganism with The Vegan Society will mean communicating with people in your local community.
  • You'll share the benefits of a vegan lifestyle.
  • You will form part of a local group, headed up by a local Organiser.
  • The Organiser will feed back your collective efforts to staff.

You will also be invited to our private Facebook group, for vegan socialising and ideas sharing.

You’ll stay in touch with the Organiser and bring your passion to tasks.

Activities can range from staffing a stall to giving a talk at an employee event.

Messaging can differ every month. Part of our mission statement is to ensure people can remain vegan, so you might focus on getting more vegan options available in local businesses.

Or within our Live Vegan for Less campaign, you may share cheap vegan recipes to help people with the cost of living.

When acting as an Advocate, you will use The Vegan Society’s branding and messaging guidelines. Your local Organiser will guide you in doing this, as they hold physical resources and handbooks. You can report any issues and feedback you have to your Organiser.

You can also contact staff if your Organiser isn't available or you have any problems. What training and support is available?

You will be provided with a big welcome and full induction from your local Organiser.

They will introduce you to the group and any actions that are ongoing.

Any training and development will be provided via your Organiser, and you can also ask for specific training on any areas that you need some development in.
