Me2 has expanded into the Reading area!
Parents and professionals will be able to register a child for support to access a mainstream activity with help from a Me2 Club volunteer.
This is a planned phased expansion starting with the 5 wards of Katesgrove, Redlands, Park, Church and Whitley and therefore only children living in these wards will be eligible to register.
Me2 Club will assess the response in 4 weeks time and are planning to start helping 5 children in the first instance and progressing to 15-20 by the end of March 2020.
The purpose of Me2 Club is to tackle the social isolation and loneliness caused by exclusion from meainstream activities. Working with our trained volunteers we transform the lives of childrenwith additional needs and their families, ensuring 'Inclusion for all'
We recruit and train volunteer 'buddies' who befriend each individual child. With help from a volunteer, children can join in with a wide range of fun activities including uniform groups, sports clubs and drama groups, giving chances to build independence and vital life and social skills. We support children to get involved in mainstream activity clubs on weekday evenings but do not provide volunteers for groups specifically for additional needs.
