The Maypole Project
THE MAYPOLE PROJECT provides a lifeline of support for children with complex medical needs and their whole family. We support children with complex and life threatening illnesses, across South East London. The Maypole Project provides unique emotional support that is ongoing, flexible, responsive, professional and confidential.
Each family is supported by one of our key workers who are specifically trained and supervised to offer emotional support, which ranges from befriending to counselling or therapy. This can be offered to whole families, one to one, couples, groups, and also extends into provision of information, advice and advocacy
SUPPORT OFFERED BY THE MAYPOLE PROJECT:
- Counselling and befriending
- Respite Days
- Play Therapy
- Maypole Active (inclusive sports club)
- Create@51 (arts and crafts sessions)
We support ALL members of a family where a child has been diagnosed between birth and 18 years of age, as having a complex or life threatening illness.
