Vegan Rights (UK) Sample Letters
The situations vegans deal with are quite specific in terms of the issues and the facts. We encourage vegans living in the UK to make use of these examples where possible, adding their own facts and specifics and opening up communication with a view to promoting positive change in reliance on their legal rights.
These sample letters are intended to give examples of opening letters or emails, in which the issue would be brought to the attention of the responsible party, and a request made for the situation to be remedied. The aim would be to open dialogue to see if a workable resolution could be found. How things progress will very much depend on how the responsible party responds. For example, if an employer responded to say that they had taken the vegan requirements into account but concluded that it would cause too much disruption to provide for vegan employees, it would then be a case of considering what they had to say in support of that and, if appropriate, responding to explain why you disagreed that providing for vegans would cause disruption to such an extent that they were not required to provide for vegans.
