Ambassadors and Champions

Our Ambassadors and Champions are volunteers who live all over the world and promote the importance of the senses of smell and taste. They are a vital part of our awareness raising, support the work we do for people both in the UK and overseas and are an integral part of the Fifth Sense community. Ambassadors are beneficiaries who live with a smell and/or taste disorders and Champions are professionals whose work benefits those who are affected by smell and taste disorders.
