Resource: Maypole – Supporting Mothers Before, During and After Parental Separation and Divorce


Taken from the Maypole Website

Maypole is a new voluntary organisation run by volunteers – by mothers and professionals who understand the stresses separation entails, and the lack of support available for women.

There are many organisations supporting parents, but these, in line with family law and government policy,  tend to focus on the needs of the child, and the father/ child relationship. Whilst these needs are very important, the views and needs of mothers are often forgotten.

Maypole aims to fill the gap, to provide support specially for mothers facing separation and divorce, and to raise awareness of the issues they face.
