This small scale research project invited vegans to describe unfair experiences in personal, social and employment contexts. On the basis of the results, it is clear that members of the vegan community are at risk of unfair and discriminatory treatment in all major sectors of social life. This study reveals that the public sector is failing in its duty to accommodate veganism, particularly in health care. Protection for vegans in employment is urgently required in both the public and private sector. This study makes a number of recommendations related to the requirements of international and domestic law and urges the United Kingdom Equality and Human Rights Commission to pay particular regard to the vegan community.
