Ataxia UK is the national charity for people affected by ataxia. Membership is free and open to anyone affected by the condition. We fund research into developing safe, effective treatments. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure. We provide a dedicated helpline and advocacy service, hold regular events and share vital information through our website and free publications. Ataxia UK works across the whole of the UK and is a charity registered in Scotland (no SC040607), in England and Wales (no 1102391) and is a company limited by guarantee (4974832).
If you'd like to run, swim, bake (or do anything else to raise some money), click the button below to get started. It's quick and easy to register and by doing so here at Wonderful.org, you can be sure that every penny raised will reach Ataxia UK.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
