MAPS is an award-winning, early-intervention project providing mentoring and advocacy support to vulnerable children and young people in Sutton, Croydon, Merton and Kingston.
Our trained volunteers work with young people who are facing a range of difficulties, whether with low self-esteem or poor mental health, or with challenging family situations. We provide them with a safe space to unpack life and have their voice heard.
