Ataxia UK works in two main ways: We fund research into finding treatments and a cure for ataxia, and we support people through our range of services.

Services we offer include:


  • Our Helpline which is open Monday - Thursday 10.30 - 14:30

  • Regular events around the country

  • A range of grants to help with the extra costs involved in having ataxia

We also recommend Health Unlocked. Health Unlocked is a social network for health. By finding others with similar health backgrounds, people can take on day-to-day health concerns together. And because the communities are set up by leading health organisations, people have access to credible support. Click here to visit the designated Ataxia UK page and be sure to follow our community!
