Edenrose, Firstly make it look worse by rolling your sleeves up and giving it a good raking, the grass tends to grow into the thatch of old grass and moss on top so it has to come off, this can go in your compost. Now get a fork and stick it into the lawn about four inches, ram the fork down waggle it a bit and move on a foot apart will do for now. Mix some washed sand with fine compost and scatter on the lawn then with a good hard brush sweep it across the lawn thinly it will fill the holes made with the fork thus aerating the roots. If it rains well and good if not water it, as above it will look like a bomb site but in a couple of weeks be green again then add a feed leave until October and put down a slow release feed and weed, leave over winter, next spring when the grass starts to grow you could do it all again or just add feed and weed, keep the mower blades up a bit, a normal uneven lawn is easily scalped and that is not good.
Hope this helps, Frank.
