Mission, vision & values

Our Mission, Vision and Values


Following Jesus Christ, The Leprosy Mission strives to break the chains of leprosy, empowering people to attain healing, dignity and life in all its fullness.


'Leprosy Defeated, Lives Transformed.'


  • Christian

    We are inspired by our faith in Jesus Christ. His example is our motivation to serve the needy, specifically people affected by leprosy. Values of grace and mercy are at the heart of our organisation and in all of our dealings with stakeholders. Decisions are made prayerfully. Consideration of others is at the heart of who we are.
  • Passionate

    We exude commitment and enthusiasm for the cause we serve. The Mission is more than just another organisation.
  • Partnership working

    We embrace partnership working both in the UK and overseas to enable us to deliver services. Our partners include professional bodies and members of the TLM Global Fellowship. Partners also, importantly, include volunteers both in England and Wales and overseas. We want to improve and therefore adopt a life-long learning approach for staff.
  • Excellence

    We strive for excellence in every aspect of our work, being the best we can with the resources available. Within the UK, we seek to be authorities on the subject of leprosy, a go-to place when people want information. Through knowledge gained we seek to support our overseas partners. We offer advice and support, especially in terms of capacity development, to see them empowered and move forward with sustainable projects and livelihoods.
  • Operational integrity

    We say what we do and do what we say. There is seamless correlation between our message and our actions.
