Practical vegan support
The Vegan Approach is a novel group founded in Sheffield by Kelly Slade and Chrissy Leyland, whose aim it is to support individuals and groups to go vegan and to stay vegan on a healthy vegan diet. They achieve this by demonstrating an easy, practical and friendly approach towards veganism. Participants are invited to sign up to a 'vegan trial month' and are supported with information days, cookery demos, eating out tips and nutritional advice.
Kelly and Chrissy are building on their success and rolling out their programme to other areas. The plan is for such initiatives to become more self-sustaining as they grow in popularity.
"An important aspect of The Vegan Approach is introducing participants to the local vegan community through the buddy scheme and by organizing social events. Feedback from participants and buddies demonstrates that this is one of the most important aspects of The Vegan Approach. This event has helped to build the local vegan community and inspired others to become active." - Kelly & Chrissy
