Websites

 

Community Groups

We suggest trying to find support and community through social media groups or via an animal rights organisation. We have suggested some of our favourites below. You can also try to search for local meet ups through www.meetup.com to see if they have any fun vegan family events or support groups.

It is important and helpful to develop a small group of like minded people who you can discuss your concerns with, ask for advice, and/or relieve any uncertainties or frustrations you may have.

A lot of cities will have either an Animal Liberation or similar organisation which will be more than happy for you to involve yourself with.

Finding nothing? Try setting up your own vegan group on Facebook for your city and see if you can develop community that way.

 


If you have a group, website, book, movie, or anything else you think would be handy for vegan parents, share it with us by emailing us at info@veganeasy.org
