What We Do
Our mission is to educate the public and healthcare professionals about Lyme disease and related tick-borne infections and work with others to research ways to combat all tick-borne illnesses.
By working both independently and in partnerships we are:
Educating the public through a variety of methods and outreach activities.
Providing educational resources for health care professionals.
Supporting patients by signposting to accredited sources of information.
Working with others in the medical, veterinary and scientific communities to address the genuine scientific uncertainties in relation to all aspects of diagnosis and treatment.
How we do it
Examples of our work include:
Working with local councils, recreation depts and other organisations to erect our unique LRC outdoor signs
Signposting to clear information about ticks and Lyme disease, providing posters and leaflets, developing a Tick Trail poster campaign.
Providing LRC charity representation at Scottish outdoor and public events. Developing educational resources for children and young people (and their parents).
