We provided support to families as we entered, endured and came out of lockdown and for some, who still remain shielded.
We understand that every families experience has been different, to quote “We are in the same storm but not the same boat”. Our unique packages of support have been tailored to each families needs, families experiencing many different struggles and seeing their children experiencing difficulties and many anxieties.
It has been noted that “The Maypole Project was the only form of consistent support”, our families and children received. As a project we found ourselves adapting to new ways of working to meet the families needs, supporting families with remote counselling, children’s remote therapy sessions, advocacy to make sure families practical needs were being met such as arranging shopping and medication deliveries, well being check-ins, activities and outings, and our virtual coffee mornings.
Our promise to families is that we are alongside them for however long they need us and we are striving to extend our services to meet their ever changing needs in our every changing world.
As an organisation we have learnt that through Face to Face and remote support that there is no family that is unreachable.
