About Ataxia UK

Ataxia is a rare, progressive neurological condition that affects walking, speech, and coordination. It can strike any age. There are different types and causes of ataxia but many cases are inherited. Estimates from recent studies say that there are at least 10,000 adults and around 500 children in the UK with a progressive ataxia. Ataxia UK supports people with ataxia in many different ways. We fund world-class research into ataxia in the hope of finding effective treatments and ultimately a cure for ataxia, with a number of important developments seen already. To support people living with the condition, we provide free membership, a dedicated helpline and advocacy service, welfare grants for essential equipment, free information and a specialist website, a network of local support, and a chance to come to events and meet other people in the same situation.
