Activities and Outings

Buddy Scheme

A Maypole Buddy Maypole team member will be paired with a young person or child to be there buddy. The buddy session will either be remote and online as zoom call or face to face with in a park or outdoor space. The idea of the session is to engage in a different activity  like art, quizzes, or a board game. Or if they are face to face in a park using the playground or sports based activity.

The buddy sessions are designed to alleviate isolation and to give a brief respite for parents as well  encourage social interaction and create a buddy.

The sessions can be weekly, bi-weekley or monthly to suit the needs of the child.

The length of a session if on a zoom call is 30 mins if the session is face to face it can be up to an hour.

“Phil – I’m so delighted and utterly grateful that  Sarah took the time to see Lily.  It really is just what she needs.  And I think  time away from mum is brilliant. “

This scheme has a framework which will be discussed with each individual. To register your interest in a place for the buddy scheme please contact our support team on 01689 889 889 or email helpline@themaypoleproject.co.uk
