We know everyone's needs are different when it comes to being diagnosed with cancer and we're keen to make sure we create space for men to explore their thoughts and feelings around their diagnosis. You told us you wanted more support for men so we stepped up.

From our guys group on Circle to our men's coaching sessions, our Lifting the Lid on mental health, we've got something to make sure you're supported at Trekstock.
