Who we are – Fifth Sense

Fifth Sense - the charity for people affected by smell and taste disorders

Fifth Sense was established in 2012 by Duncan Boak, who lost his sense of smell as the result of a head injury in 2005.  Fifth Sense has grown rapidly since then and is  the first charity in the UK supporting smell and taste disorder sufferers, providing a signpost to potential diagnosis and treatment, and playing a leading role in educating society on the huge role that the sense of smell plays in our lives.

Fifth Sense is not yet a registered charity but we plan to apply to the Charities Commission for registered status in 2016.  We are recognised as a charity for tax purposes by HMRC and our HMRC Charities Reference Number is EW14336.
