Peter moved onto work as a policy maker to The Cabinet Office, primarily working on social exclusion. Many of the policies he worked on, such as early intervention, are still relevant today.

The Brighton-based musician and business-owner has been a much-valued supporter of the charity for many years and fronted the Snowdogs by the Sea campaign of 2016 with joy and enthusiasm; recently launching Snailspace for the hospice in October.
"I've discovered personally since then, by being involved with Snowdogs by the Sea in 2016 and now Snailspace is that the people who make Martlets tick are truly a pleasure to be around.
I am often a bit stuck for words when it comes to serious subjects, but they make it easy and have always bought a huge amount of fun to the projects that I've been involved with.
I'm honoured to have been asked to represent Martlets as an Ambassador."
