Support from trusts and foundations makes a huge difference to our work. Every year, these charitable organisatons change the lives of thousands of people through their generosity. Without their help, we simply wouldn’t be able to have the impact that we do. 

Our projects provide medical treatment, education, livelihood development, housing and improved sanitation for some of the most vulnerable people in Africa and Asia. We rely on support from trusts and foundations in all of these areas. 

We seek to build lasting, productive partnerships that help trusts and foundations achieve their charitable aims and objectives and, together, transform and empower the lives of people affected by leprosy. 

We understand that the heart of our partners is to engage more closely with the beneficiaries and see real, lasting change in the lives they touch. Our commitment to helping them achieve this is reflected in the feedback we give. We also know that seeing our work first-hand can be both a valuable and rewarding experience, and trips overseas to see projects in action can sometimes be arranged. 

We welcome the opportunity to work with new partners. If you represent a grant-making trust or know of a trust to which we could apply, please contact Vicki Davison by emailing vickid@tlmew.org.uk or by telephone on 01733 404884. We encourage visits to our Peterborough office and are also happy to travel to present our work to trustees. 

What our partners say

“The St. Lazarus Charitable Trust has worked with The Leprosy Mission for a number of years. For the past three years, we have focused our financial support on the Rainbow Children’s Home, Andhra Pradesh, India and the home caring for elderly people affected by leprosy in Bankura, West Bengal, India. We value our relationship with TLM’s capable, knowledgeable and dedicated team very highly and are pleased to be able to support their work in this way.”
