The Men’s Room
The Men’s Room is an arts & health charity supporting men and trans people who sex work, are homeless or both.
From 17th March we will be shutting the office to all visitors except those with a prior appointment. We are in communication with all our current service users and developing individual support plans to help them cope at this worrying time.
This means we will be ceasing face-to-face creative engagement until otherwise advised. We have also taken the decision to postpone regular outreach sessions to enable us to focus on one-to-one support. We are in liaison with partners across the sector to develop a plan to support rough-sleepers in response to the latest developments and will re-instate outreach as soon as it becomes clear what those plans are.
As you will no doubt appreciate this has not been an easy decision. However, given the gravity of the situation we believe in the best interests of the community at large and our service users in particular that the most sensible response is to limit social contact as much as possible while continuing to prioritise supporting vulnerable service users.
We will continue to be available to all partners and service users, contactable by mobile phone, email and social media.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
