Lyme Disease Action was set up in 2003; it is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers. We are a group of people affected by Lyme disease. Most of us are scientists and we are all volunteers, fitting LDA activities around our daily lives.
We have neither employees not premises. We rely entirely on donations and receive no funding from commercial sources or advertising. The information we provide is impartial, evidence based and we are accredited to NHS England’s Information Standard. We are all un-paid volunteers, working in our spare time. We may not respond to your emails instantly, but we will respond. Above all, we have had Lyme disease and struggled to get treatment, so we know what it is like.
The charitable aims of LDA are:
The relief of persons suffering from Lyme Disease, other Borrelioses and associated diseases in particular but not exclusively by:
- Raising awareness of the public at large including conferences, information and support
- Scientific and medical education and research in topics related to Lyme disease, other Borrelioses and associated diseases provided the useful results of such research are published.
Our website is full of news, self help guides, downloads, links, shop and useful information. Please also take the time to visit our Facebook Page
