Details

The tick awareness toolkit gives information on ticks and Lyme disease and how to raise awareness of ticks and tick-borne diseases in your local area.

The tick awareness leaflets and posters can be used to encourage awareness of the risk of tick bites. You can choose to co-brand with UKHSA by adding your logo to the Word files or simply download the PDFs.

The recording form is for capturing details of your tick encounter to share with the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA).

UKHSA’s tick surveillance scheme explains how to take part in the scheme and how to complete the form.
