The Men’s Room is an arts and social support charity that works creatively to empower disadvantaged and marginalised young men aged 18-30. We support male sex workers, homeless men and men involved in the criminal justice system. We offer them opportunities to get involved in high quality arts projects whilst accessing one to one support for challenges they face in their everyday lives.
Our work engages young men experiencing multiple disadvantage, including homeless men, sex workers, men with experience of sexual exploitation, offenders, and men struggling with mental health problems and substance misuse. We work with artists on a diverse range of projects throughout the year, whilst also offering outreach services and personalised support to our service users.
Our approach combines creativity with traditional social care support, offering the men respite and a space for reflection, whilst also giving them a creative outlet they wouldn’t otherwise get. This allows them to engage with positivity and creativity, to be young men. The Men’s Room has staff, partners and volunteers from both the arts and social care agencies. Here you can find out about our Staff, our Board of Trustees and our Partner Agencies.
We work to reduce social isolation in our service users. With the help of our donors and volunteers, we nurture the men’s self confidence, enabling them to take control of their own lives.
