Get involved


Volunteering opportunities

We have opportunities which will allow you to turn your passion into action, using your qualities, skills and experience to benefit people affected by leprosy along with the disabilities and prejudice it brings.

Occasional event volunteer

Are you interested in getting involved in occasional or one-off events near where you live?

These could range from bucket collections, to event marshalling, to helping out on information stands – our team of Community Fundraisers works across the country and often need an extra pair of hands at events. 

If you’re interested in being on our list of potential volunteers, get in touch with us today and we’ll put you in touch with your local fundraiser, who can let you know what opportunities we have near you. 

If you are interested in volunteering please contact volunteering@lepra.org.uk or call 01206 216700 to discuss how to apply.

 

Please note - we are unable to offer volunteer opportunities working overseas because rather than building facilities our local staff strengthen existing ones and train up local volunteers to support our work; however, we may be able to make referrals for volunteers or medical students with particular/relevant clinical or therapeutic skills.
