Self-Advocacy (Scotland)

This self-advocacy guide aims to empower vegans and vegetarians receiving care. Within it, you’ll find details of the main laws and regulations that protect your and your loved one’s rights to practice your beliefs. We explain the steps you can take to ensure that these rights are met.

Needing care can be a worrying experience. Among the challenges may be a sense of losing control over your diet. With less independence, people may be unable to shop, cook and ensure that their dietary values and beliefs are being met. 

Primary Audience

This publication is aimed at older vegans and vegetarians and their loved ones.
