Domestic violence and abuse

Domestic violence and abuse happens in the home. When a family member, current or former partner is violent or abusive to you, you’re experiencing domestic abuse. It can involve physical contact, verbal or emotional abuse and threats to harm or kill you. Men and women experience domestic violence and abuse.

Oddballs Foundation

The OddBalls Foundation was set up in 2016 to raise awareness of Testicular Cancer. Through the Foundation we hope to make a difference to male health around the world. Testicular Cancer is around 95% curable so early diagnosis and regular checking is important. Our aim is to fit as many ‘check yourself ‘ guides into male toilets and changing rooms across the country. This will encourage males to check themselves regularly and in doing so detect any problems early.

Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men in Northern Ireland. Prostate cancer usually develops slowly, so there may be no signs you have it for many years. Most cases develop in men aged 50 or older.

Prostate Cancer UK

Prostate Cancer UK's top priority is funding research to stop prostate cancer killing men. We’re investing millions to find better treatments and better tests that can spot fast-growing cancers early, and could be used in a screening programme to save thousands of lives.
