Caring Today and Researching for Tomorrow

Ataxia is a type of neurological condition that affects balance, speech, and co-ordination. Ataxia is progressive, meaning it gets worse with time, until people become entirely dependent on others for all their needs. Over 10,000 people in the UK have ataxia and there is currently no cure.

Ataxia UK is the national charity for people affected by ataxia. We provide unique services and support, including a dedicated helpline and advocacy service;events and conferences where people can meet and share information; a quarterly magazine; a website with lots of information and adiscussion forum; publications, films, and reports.

As well as our specialist services, in the last five years we have spent over £3 million on research into possible treatments and cures for ataxia. Our vision is a world without ataxia and, with the help of our brilliant supporters; we are working towards this every day.
