The Maypole Project

The Maypole Project provides a lifeline of support for children with complex medical needs and their whole family. We support over 160 children with life threatening, life limiting illnesses and their families every year 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.
