Local support groups have been set up by Lyme disease patients across the UK. We welcome new groups and are happy to list any details you think would be useful. Whilst the majority of the Lyme community find support online, it’s great to meet people in person and have a real chat over a ‘cup of coffee’. The below groups are a mixture of regular and occasional meets and give people the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation nearby.
