How we work

Sense About Science is an independent charitable trust funded by donations from foundations, science bodies, industry and individuals. Our activities are coordinated by a small office team and supported by a wide network of organisations and volunteers from all areas of science.

We depend on the goodwill of our supporters to help us to ensure that evidence is central when scientific matters are discussed – among opinion formers, across different media, in policy and official bodies and within civic groups.


  • work with scientists to respond to inaccuracies and attacks on science
  • work with scientific bodies to promote the benefits of scientific research
  • explain to stakeholders how and why science is different from opinion
  • bring scientists into direct contact with interested groups and opinion formers
  • provide a facility for every kind of organisation to contact scientists about controversial or worrying issues
  • arrange briefings on scientific developments for non-specialists
