Coronavirus Information

We’re working hard to respond to the current COVID-19 situation as and when it develops.

Children and families remain at the heart of our strategy and we will continue to work hard towards ensuring that our service continues in whichever way possible.

We will continue to adhere to the current Public Health England (PHE) and Government advice and take measures as needed to protect the best interests of our families, supporters, volunteers and staff.


We will continue to follow advice from Public Health England (PHE) to ensure that children and families, as well as staff and volunteers protected as much as possible as lockdown measures are gradually and carefully lifted.

We’re working with each individual and family that we support or who have newly referred to our services to ensure that our services continue to be tailored to each of their unique needs.  This may involve continuation of on-line or phone support or activities or their views on planning towards re-adaptation to face to face meetings.   If you have any requirement that you would like to let us know or if you would like to talk to someone in our Support or Activities Team please call 01689 889889 or email helpline@themaypoleproject.co.uk

If you would like to talk to someone in our Support Team please call 01689 889 889 or email Helpline@themaypoleproject.co.uk


Your support has never been needed more – Thank you so much for your continued support!
If you would like to fundraise for us, please check out our Fundraising page for more ideas.
If you require advice about the events you are organising, your own fundraising activity or events you are participating in, please contact our Fundraising Team by emailing fundraising@themaypoleproject.co.uk for further information. We will continue to keep in touch with any updates on fundraising activity.
Volunteers: Thank you for your commitment and understanding. Please wait to hear from your line manager about your particular area. We look forward to welcoming you back.
As lockdown measures ease, we are continuing to recruit to volunteer roles and more information can be accessed here.


Our valued staff are paramount to the continuation of our service and we are taking all necessary measures to ensure that we are able to deliver this safely and with minimal disruption throughout this period. We would like to thank our staff for their tireless commitment to the charity. THANK YOU!

We continue to need your support!

Families often tell us that services we offer at The Maypole Project are one of the only trusted ‘constants’ in their lives, helping them as they face uncharted territory, uncertainty and often the unknown. That is not changing in the short term. We will continue to be there to support them in their lives, in whatever way we can be of most help, by telephone, online or in other ways, for as long as is possible.

However, we continue to face a dramatic drop in our income. All large fundraising events for the foreseeable future are cancelled or postponed and we are in a world where we do not expect to be able to recover these sums easily. 100% of our income comes from the generosity of donors and we need these regular funds in order to keep The Maypole Project going.

For the vulnerable families to continue to benefit from our support we urgently need all the help we can get and, whilst we completely appreciate that this is a global issue and is affecting everyone personally too, our priority has to be to ensure that these families are supported by those of us that are able to give something.
