Accountability and Transparency

We are currently working towards our Global Strategy 2019-23, which we have published in full. Each year we produce a report based on this Global Strategy, which provides insights into how we have performed compared to our targets. This report also details how we have received and allocated our money.

Across our website we have published details of how our work is having an impact, whether that is through advocacy, research, community projects, or healthcare.


Safeguarding is an essential way for us to live up to our values. We ask all staff, volunteers and representatives to sign a code of conduct. We ensure all new recruits receive extensive safeguarding training and are familiar with our safeguarding policies.

Policies & Standards

Policies are also an important part of our work at The Leprosy Mission. Our policies are developed in collaboration with Members of our Global Fellowship and cover many areas, including Safety and Security, Risk Management, Programmes, Finance, Human Resources, Communications, and Fundraising. If you have a question about any of our policies, please contact us and we will be happy to help.

To ensure these policies are adhered to and that The Leprosy Mission holds itself to the highest possible standards, each Member Country is reviewed at least every five years. We use a peer review process, meaning that each Member Country will be reviewed by other Global Fellowship Members with the appropriate skills to verify they are meeting the commitments in the TLM Charter and the minimum standards as laid out in our policies.

This means that each Member Country will be reviewed by other Members of our Global Fellowship to ensure they are meeting, or aiming to meet, the standards that have been set by our policies. The reviewers who conduct Member Reviews represent countries from every corner of our Global Fellowship.

Annual report and financial statements

We want to be clear with our supporters and potential donors about how we spend our money. If you want to know more about how we spend our money, take a look at our Trustee Reports. If you have any questions about these, please do get in touch with us.

You can also read about our impact for 2022 in our Annual Impact Report.

Tackling the climate crisis

Like any organisation, we have a role to play in tackling the climate crisis. As well as playing our part in reducing our carbon footprint, we want to be transparent about what we are doing to care for creation.
