Description
The Irish Sleep Apnoea Trust is a non political, non profit making Patient Support Group for sufferers (and their families) of Sleep Apnoea.

The ethos and management style of the Irish Sleep Apnoea Trust is one of transparency in its decision making process coupled with a commitment to serve and deliver benefits to the members. Effective communication is a cornerstone of this style.

To ensure delivery of these and our principal aims, our Committee is elected annually and is governed by membership approved Rules, and Accounting and Administrative Procedures and Controls. This is in addition to the normal regulations governing corporate bodies. The Committee Structure provides for membership representation from each of the Health Board areas, and local committees, to ensure regular contact and input from all opinions within the Trust.

Regular contact is also maintained through our newsletter and email updates. Our web site is used as an information, awareness and communication portal for our members and the general public. It also acts as an important communications portal for interaction with other groups, feedback and membership surveys.
