Welcome to our Ataxia Foundation Ireland (AFI) website which we hope will become your first stop for anything Ataxia-related.

We are the National Support Group for people affected by all types of ataxia including Friedreich's Ataxia (the most common Genetic Ataxia) and up to 200 other types of Ataxias.

We aim to provide support to people with Ataxia and their families, siblings and friends.  We have established this organisation which is run and managed by people with this condition.  The Chairperson and the majority of the Board have an Ataxia.

Ataxia Foundation Ireland focuses on the social and emotional dimensions, we aim to prevent isolation and foster a sense of community among those impacted by ataxia.
