Martin began volunteering for the charity in 2012 and quickly discovered his natural talent for putting people at ease and being a good listener.

In 2016 he became our Male Support Worker and now delivers Male Cancer Awareness sessions ‘from the Maiden City to Magilligan’.

These relaxed events help men become more aware of their bodies and understand that it is ok to ask for help.

Martin also facilitates the monthly meetings of the Pink Panthers Men’s Support Group and HUGS Carers Support Group, which are a safe space to relax and chat with people in similar situations.

Martin is a well-known figure in the city’s LGBTQIA+ community and is a passionate mental health advocate.
