Who is Viva!?

Viva! is a registered vegan charity. Viva!Health focuses on health and nutrition. We provide:

  • accurate information from which to make informed choices
  • accessible, easy-to-understand information to help people go veggie/vegan - and dispel urban myths!
  • support in going vegan, vegetarian or meat-reducing
  •  hundreds of vegan recipes and advice on cooking
We regularly communicate this information to the public, to health professionals, schools and food manufacturers by:
  •  launching dynamic campaigns (eg on heart disease,diabetes, breast cancer and more)
  •  producing ground-breaking scientific reports
  •  publishing imaginative guides to help the public's understanding of health and food
  •  producing simple but science-based fact sheets on complex subject
Viva! works on all issues relating to food because what we eat not only affects the animals that are bred and killed but also the environment, our health and the world’s poorest people. We help supporters to make positive changes to their diet, we campaign for animals and the planet – and we host the Incredible Vegan Roadshows across the UK with free cookery demos, food samples, talks and stalls.
