How to find us:

Click here to be taken to the AA auto route finder.

Simply put your address/postcode in and then MESMAC’s postcode (NE1 5AN).

You should then have a planned route to us with the option of having a map included.



There is currently a small step at the front entrance to the building of approximately 2 ¾ inches high. This opens into a wide area which provides sufficient space for a wheelchair to manoeuvre.
If you are a wheelchair user you may need assistance to enter the building,  a portable ramp can be provided. A member of staff will arrange to meet you at the entrance to the building at a specified time where required should you need it.
There is also an alternative side entrance which provides level access at the side of the building; again a pre-arranged appointment can be made to enable you to enter the premises via this entrance.
Alternatively, services can also be provided from alternative premises.
