What we do

Group projects are a major part of what we do. Lyme disease UK exists to support people who are living with the effects of Lyme disease and are in need of support and guidance. We are a team of volunteers who work hard to provide support and raise awareness of Lyme disease amongst the UK public and healthcare systems.

Since Lyme disease UK was founded in 2013, many group projects have been undertaken to help advance awareness, diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease in the UK. As a community, we’ve been involved in protests, conferences, the NICE guidelines formation, MP meetings and many other events.
