Ataxia Ireland CLG received the Inspectors' report from the Charity Regulator at the end of July 2017. The Board and staff of Ataxia Ireland CLG are totally committed to responding fully to the recommendations detailed therein by the CRA. However due to circumstances beyond our control we, the Board, were not in a position to respond to the CRA report within the original time-frame set out in that report. Consequently, the Board has requested (and were granted) an extension to the original deadline by the Charities Regulatory Authority. The Board have now committed to furnishing their response to the CRA by close of business on Friday the 1st September 2017 Ataxia Ireland CLG will have no further comment to make in the interim.
