Volunteer Opportunities

  • Church Representatives

    Be a voice for leprosy in your church and a vital link between the congregation and The Leprosy Mission.

    Church Reps play an essential and vital role in deepening this relationship and creating long term support.

    You can play a key role in spreading our message in your church and amongst your network. In doing so, you will help raise awareness, critical funds and encourage prayer support by sharing the needs of those affected by leprosy.

    Here are some ways in which church reps do this;

    • Provide regular updates on the work of TLM
    • Invite a TLM speaker to attend your church service, midweek, ladies meeting or youth group
    • Encourage your church to participate in the annual World Leprosy Sunday event
    • Fundraise by holding a coffee morning, bringing sale and return shop where items from the TLM shop can be brought to a meeting or event or organising an annual collection in your church.

    No experience is necessary as full support and guidance is provided.

  • TLM shop (October and November)

    Do you love chatting to new people? Are you creative with a keen eye for what would make a shop floor look inviting to customers? If so, we are looking for a couple of people, ideally with retail experience, who could commit to a couple of hours a day, preferably two or three days a week to volunteer in our Lisburn TLM shop during the months of October and November.
