About SASA

The Scottish Association for Sleep Apnoea, a registered Charity SC023352, was formed in 1996 to promote public awareness of sleep apnoea and provide information and support for sufferers and their families. It is a patient support organisation run entirely by volunteers, who themselves have OSA or are the partners of those with OSA.

SASA  aims to increase the public and professional understanding of sleep related disorders. By raising awareness of sleep apnoea and the health problems associated with leaving the condition untreated, SASA hopes more people will be diagnosed; by supporting individual sufferers and their families, SASA hopes that more people will be successfully treated,leading to a better quality of life for themselves and their families.

As well as the health benefits for individuals successfully treated, SASA believes there will be a significant decrease in road traffic accidents caused by drivers with undiagnosed sleep apnoea falling asleep at the wheel.

The Association provides information leaflets about sleep apnoea and snoring, and their significance, and these are distributed widely to help educate the public, health professionals, sufferers and their families. Additional information can be obtained through our website which we aim to keep up-to-date with the latest news and findings. Support for sufferers and their families is provided through local support groups.

Conference

SASA’s Annual Conference is attended by patients, partners , medical professionals, equipment suppliers and manufacturers’ representatives. It is a useful forum for the discussion of sleep apnoea and related problems and also provides an update on research and all matters regarding sleep apnoea.   For more details, please visit our  News and Events Page

Membership/Fundraising

Without fundraising it would be impossible for SASA to provide the support and information which sufferers and their families need, and we are always looking to increase our membership and fundraising activity. Fundraising for research, publication of the research and such projects are agreed by the Management Committee.

To apply for membership please use the contact form on the Home page.

 Annual subscriptions are £10 per person or £15 for joint membership and are due on 1st April each year.

Please note that our Bank Account number has changed as a result of a system restructure within the banking system – so for current members, please download the application form for details of the new account number for standing orders.
