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 Leeds office directly on 0113 244 4209 or email leeds@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.
