Charity Ataxia Ireland is set to be closed with its functions transferred to another body.
The board of the organisation made the announcement in a notice posted on the charity’s website. It said it believed the charity “no longer has the trust of its members or the wider public, and this makes fundraising impossible both currently and into the future”.
“The board feels that the duty of care to the members of Ataxia Ireland CLG and indeed future members, can and will be better served by a different organisation going forward,” the notice states. “The board will be closing down Ataxia Ireland CLG over the coming weeks and after continuing discussions, will entrust AFI (Ataxia Foundation Ireland) with the responsibilities and duties previously performed and carried out by Ataxia Ireland for its members.”
