Sonas Apc can be very proud to be recognised by GSK Ireland as a leading charity in trying to improve peoples’ health and well-being in Ireland. This award will help Sonas Apc to continue to provide people with dementia and their care partners with evidence-informed supports, to enable them to live full and meaningful lives.
