“I just wanted to say thank you so much for having Joel and Chloe. What an amazing day they had.  It was lovely to see them at a club together and the sight of Chloe being pulled around on the parachute was a delight to see!

Thank you for your kindness and warmth and I hope that we can get more involved going forward.”   The Price Family

Maypole Active is an inclusive sports and activities club, designed for children with a complex medical need or disability to gain access to sport.

We ensure that children of all abilities can join in with the sport or activity taking place. It is also a great way for children to socialise with their team mates, make friendships and create peer support in an informal setting. Importantly, it also gives the parents or carer time to take a break.

“After trying to find after school sports sessions for Georgia for many months, without success, we came across Maypole Active and gave it a try. We are so pleased we did. In only a few weeks our daughter, Georgia, has grown in confidence, and is taking part in team activities. The skills she is learning are; following instructions with confidence, social interaction, team work, turn taking, sharing, physical activities and even having a little boxing with a punch bag at the end! She is so happy to be going every Wednesday and jumps for joy when she sees Maypole Active on her schedule.

It’s a fantastic set up and I would recommend to all parents. Well done to all the staff involved. All very kind and full of energy and enthusiasm!” (Georgia’s mum)
