About the Charity
Vegetarian for Life is the leading authority on diet and healthy living advice for older vegans and vegetarians.
Since there are currently only two fully vegetarian care homes in the UK, one of VfL’s major goals is to improve the standard of vegan and vegetarian catering in existing homes. We seek to do this through our UK List, which is a geographical listing of organisations and care homes that make a special effort to cater for vegetarians and vegans.
We are striving towards a vision where at least 1 in every 6 UK care homes are members of our UK List – and 1 in every 100 will be VfL accredited.
Meeting the needs of a diverse range of older people is important to us, too. You’ll help VfL become the first port of call for information, support and advice for older vegans, vegetarians, their families, friends and a broad range of care caterers.
