The Martin Fisher Foundation’s vision is to eliminate HIV within the next generation. We intend to do this by increasing HIV testing, improving knowledge of HIV in the wider population, increasing availability of PrEP and reducing HIV stigma.   Our purpose is to facilitate the city-wide HIV response wherever possible.

The charity is run by 12 volunteer Trustees who meet regularly to oversee the running of the charity. Our trustees have a range of experience and expertise to enable effective management of the organisation. Our Patron is Baroness Gould of Potternewton.


Our mission is to promote, preserve and protect the health and wellbeing of people with or at risk of HIV by:

  • Increasing access to HIV testing
  • Supporting innovation in HIV prevention and care
  • Advancing public and professional awareness and education of HIV to reduce stigma, reduce new HIV infections and deaths from HIV-related illness
  • Improving the quality of life for people living with HIV

Our values are inspired by Martin and describe the underlying principles about how we work and what we do, and how we hope others will see us:

  • Community-centred – everything we do is for the benefit of people living with, or at risk of, HIV
  • Determined – we won’t give up until we’ve reached our goals
  • Inclusive – we embrace diversity and promote equality for all people living with, or at risk of, HIV
  • Inspirational – we always strive to inspire others to take action through our innovative approaches
