The Maypole Project provides a lifeline of support for children with complex medical needs and their whole family. We support many 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.
The National Autistic Society is the leading UK charity for people with autism (including Asperger syndrome) and their families. We provide information, support and pioneering services, and campaign for a better world for people with autism. We currently support 100,000 people a year. We know we make a positive difference to their lives and we want to do the same for even more of the 700,000 people in the UK living with autism.
