The MESMAC office is wheelchair friendly but unfortunately access into the building is not. There is a small step into 11 Nelson Street, Newcastle which is approximately 3 inches high, some wheelchairs can manage this but some electric ones cannot. MESMAC are not responsible for this step, this is the responsibility of the building managers but MESMAC are working on this problem and hope to have a portable ramp for access soon.

Please let us know beforehand if you would like an appointment so we can help with access.
