Volunteers enhance many of our projects at Yorkshire MESMAC, and we are looking to expand some of these projects with further volunteer support.

If you are interested in more casual volunteering at Yorkshire MESMAC, you can find information on and apply for our condom packing parties on this page. Alternatively, you can contact the Hull office directly on 01482 291190 or email hull@mesmac.co.uk

Yorkshire MESMAC supplies condoms and lube to bars, saunas and other venues across Yorkshire. If you’ve ever used one of our condom packs, you’ll know how useful they are! We organise regular condom packing parties so that we can continue to provide this service.

These events happen on a regular basis, usually weekly or fortnightly, and our existing volunteers enjoy being involved and giving something back. So far to date, more than 6 million condoms and lube have been packed and distributed. This is vital to all the projects within Yorkshire MESMAC and to many users across Yorkshire.

If you would like to volunteer for the condom packing parties at Yorkshire MESMAC, please click here. We will get back to you with opportunities and upcoming condom packing parties.


We started providing sexual health services in the city in 2015 to help prevent the spread of STIs and reduce late diagnosis through testing, education and community action. Our main focus is on:

  • Gay and bisexual men and men who have sex with men
  • Women, families and women dating after divorce or separation
  • Black and other ethnic minorities

We also deliver training and workshops for both service users and professionals.

We strive to ensure that LGB&T people accessing the commercial Gay scene know where they can also get information about sexual health, counselling services and support groups etc. To do this staff members will visit scene venues and sometimes other events/locations where LGB&T people meet/socialise. We talk to the people out that evening about our services, answer any questions they have about sexual health and give out appropriate resources such as condoms and information leaflets.

We carry out community testing under the project name Testing Times. The service is an award winning high profile service within Yorkshire MESMAC and we are looking for keen and confident people who are interested in getting experience in outreach and health care.

The community testing service includes rapid HIV testing, syphilis testing and screening for urethral chlamydia and gonorrhoea away from a clinic setting.

Community Testing Volunteers support the work of the testing carried out by Yorkshire MESMAC workers. This is done in a number of ways, from staffing reception to undertaking outreach in targeted community groups.
