Really good to meet Duncan Boak from Banbury at the Acquired Brain Injury Reception at Parliament yesterday.
Duncan suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2005 which resulted in him losing his sense of smell. This had a significant impact on Duncan’s quality of life leading him to set up his own charity, Fifth Sense, which is now based in Bicester and supports others with smell and taste disorders.
With brain injuries affecting over 300,000 people a year in Britain, I’m pleased that the Government remains committed to publishing a cross-department strategy to help address the issues faced by people living with acquired brain injury.
You can find out more about the important work Fifth Sense do here.
