Ataxia Foundation Ireland was founded in 2016 "by members for members" it is the National Support Group for people affected by Friedreich's and other genetic Ataxias and their families.

Friedreichs Ataxia is a genetic and progressive disorder of the central nervous system which usually manifests itself in children between the ages of six and sixteen years. However, in some instances onset of Friedreichs and other Genetic Ataxia's can be much later, because of the genetic factor more than one person in a family may be affected.

Ataxia Foundation Ireland provides advice and practical assistance in securing counselling, advocacy matters, respite and nursing care and will help families navigate through the difficult world of disability. We also provide essential services such as equipment and accommodation grants. The charity holds several social events throughout the year which is very important to people with Ataxia avoiding isolation, people can meet with others living with the same condition.

Ataxia Foundation Ireland strives to enhance quality of life for every person living with an Ataxia. We hope to lead positive change and deliver value through experience, information, advocacy and services
