Ataxia supports anyone with Ataxia through a range of services.
They offer 3 grants schemes:
The Cornberg Grant
The Cornberg Grant supports individuals with Ataxia who are unable to get help from statutory services for mobility aids and house adaptations.
The grant will help fund the purchase of equipment and adaptations such as wheelchairs, bathing and toileting facilities.
There are four funding deadlines throughout the year: 28th February, 31st May, 31st August and 30th November.
The Jerry Farr Fellowship
The Fellowship was set up in memory of Jerry Farr to allow others with Ataxia to follow Jerry's example of using travel to broaden horizons.
Ataxia UK is looking for an individual over 18 years with Ataxia to fulfill their dream by giving them the opportunity to make the journey of a lifetime.
The maximum grant awarded is £3,500 (£6,500 if a carer is required).
The 2016 round of funding opens on 3rd February 2016 and will close on 22nd April 2016.
Mark Dower Trust
The Mark Dower Trust offers a small annual grant of up to £3,000. The aim is to support young people by enabling them to pursue skills, hobbies or further educational opportunities and hence allow them to maximise their independence.
The next round for this grant will be in 2017
