We meet once every six weeks on a Saturday afternoon however the date/time is flexible with your needs and requirements. We are a group that love sharing recipes and tips for living with our different ataxias. We welcome all affected by ataxia to join us!

Please find below details of the North Yorkshire Ataxia Friendship Group - currently we are not holding meetings due to Covid-19, but hopefully they will start again when the lockdown allows.

The North Yorkshire Ataxia Friendship Group meet monthly at the Holiday Inn, Tadcaster Rd in York. We meet to have an informal chat about ataxia and a whole range of non-related things, and generally support each other and have tea/coffee, biscuits and a laugh. All together we have about 25 people who meet and about 10 of the people have ataxia of some form. Throughout the year we arrange days out, fundraising, hog roast/BBQ, a day at the races and also a Christmas lunch.  We would love to see you at any of our meetings. We have people travelling from Skipton, Knaresborough, Ripon, Filey, Harrogate, Hull, Driffield and Malton and look forward to welcoming new members.
