News in brief

How we support our community

One of our core functions is to support everyone within our community following, or interested in adopting, a vegan lifestyle. We do that by:

  • supporting members, volunteers and those seeking advice or support
  • educating the community about the benefits of a plant-based diet
  • visiting schools and offering guest speaker opportunities
  • advocating a healthy and cruelty-free lifestyle via our community events
  • running our annual Vegan Expo which has become a huge success
  • providing local community events to support the vegan community
  • publishing free fortnightly newsletters about local news and events
