We know what Lyme disease is like. All of us involved with Lyme Disease Action have either had the disease ourselves, or have close family members affected. We are working for patients, to help them get a diagnosis and treatment and for doctors who need better information. We also work to make the general public aware of the risk of tick-borne disease. We provide free, trustworthy resources for everyone via our website.
Founded in 2003, Lyme Disease Action exists to address the current lack of awareness of Lyme disease both amongst the public and health professionals.
Accredited to NHS England’s Information Standard, our activity is focused on producing resources for people to use and to pass on. We supply awareness leaflets to walkers groups, first aid trainers, NHS minor injury units, public parks, Forest Schools, Vets, GP Practices and many more.
We want to stimulate the increase and spread of knowledge about Lyme disease and tick borne diseases generally and we are working with doctors and government agencies to improve provision for Lyme disease patients.
We run a conference every year, with national and international experts and these conferences have provided an educational opportunity for clinicians and a resource for patients and carers. LDA also attends medical conferences and exhibitions as an opportunity to take information directly to doctors.
LDA is funded entirely by donations and we have no premises and no staff: volunteers run the charity from their homes.
