The Manchester Men’s Room (TMR) is arts and social care charity which supports young men engaged in or at risk of involvement in sex work or exploitation. We support marginalised and chaotic young male sex workers and young men at risk of exploitation. As an art based social care charity we place arts based practice at the core of our work. The centrality of the arts to our engagement allows us to develop trust and establish positive and productive relationships with young men living extremely chaotic, marginalised and often harmful lives.

We have recently secured Big Lottery funding to develop our participatory arts and social care support programmes. Volunteers are involved in all aspects of the organisations activities including creative engagement, street outreach and netreach to online sex workers.

The Volunteer Coordinator is a new post based in our office in central Manchester. The successful candidate develop and expand our existing provision ensuring our award winning and innovative approach continues to reach, engage, support and empower vulnerable young men.

The Volunteer Coordinator will co-ordinate and develop our volunteer programme, ensuring that we have a safe, effective and accessible range of volunteering opportunities which meets the needs of our services users and enhances the effectiveness and reach of our provision. The post-holder will develop and manage a co-ordinated programme which demonstrably values volunteers and enables us to meet the whole-person needs of this highly marginalised and vulnerable group.
