Introduction to Fifth Sense
Fifth Sense is the charity for people affected by smell and taste disorders – such as anosmia, the loss or lack of the sense of smell – conditions which are often invisible to those unaffected. The vision of our pioneering and innovative organisation is to transform society’s understanding of the senses of smell and taste, and through doing so, transform the lives of those affected by smell and taste disorders. We educate people on the importance of smell and taste and the impact that impairments of these senses can have whilst providing support, advice and a signpost to potential diagnosis and treatment to those affected, including their partners, family members and friends. We also support, promote and facilitate research into such conditions.
Through the information, support and signposting we provide, patients are able to obtain treatment for their condition through a network of Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Surgeons with whom we have strong links, in addition to helping themselves to better live with their condition.
