We are delighted to announce that Fifth Sense has been awarded registered charity status. Our board of trustees put together a detailed and thorough application to the Charities Commission, which was approved the day before our conference, and our charity number is 1175553.
Fifth Sense has been a charity since we formed our board of trustees, ratified our first constitution and set out our charitable objects in January 2014. Becoming a registered charity is an important step forwards and can give an organisation greater legitimacy in the eyes of the public and potential funders. It will enable us to move forwards with our strategic vision and do more to support more people with smell and taste disorders.
We’d like to say a huge thanks to all our members, supporters and donors for helping us reach this important milestone and we look forward to exploring the opportunities this presents in 2018 and beyond.
