Unique Church Stretton Project to Enable Independence

The ‘MAYSI’ project is unique within the County. It was initiated by Mayfair to enable users of the Service to retain their independence. The philosophy behind this project is based upon supporting independence within an individual's home.

Who is it for? If you are:

  • Experiencing difficulties due to reduced independence?
  • Struggling to cope with everyday chores?
  • Feeling isolated and lonely at times?
  • Recovering from a recent illness?
  • Finding that Social Services are unable to offer assistance at this time?
  • or, if you have chosen not to engage assistance via Social Services, the 'MAYSI' Project may be able to offer support and advice with regard to your care needs.

CoCo is a team of trained volunteers who offer one-to-one support for people in their own homes. The volunteers can help in a variety of ways but do not provide personal care or do housework. They offer on-going friendship and support for specific activities.

Who do I contact for further information?

Please contact the Jenny Englefield or Dice Buchanan by email: [email protected] who will then arrange to visit you to assist in identifying your needs. This will involve completing a basic information form.

Important Note: the 'MAYSI' Project gives assistance in making contacts and arranging the most appropriate help for your needs. 'MAYSI' is part funded by Shropshire Council. CoCo was originally funded by the Strategic Health Authority. 'Maysi' covers the following areas: Church Stretton, Craven Arms, Dorrington, Bishops Castle and Clun.
