We are committed to exploring innovative ways of reaching to the families who most need our support. Mayden has invested in its partnership ethos, identifying the mutual value to be derived from effective partnership working taking a multi-agency approach.

The Initial assessment, Local Authority recommendations and the progress are observed throughout their journey and care pathway. This will determine qualitative as well as quantitative levels of support required.
