COVID-19 Update (13/08/2020) – Me2 Club has now moved into the next stage of our expansion and we are excited to announce that we are now welcoming applications from families throughout the entire Reading Borough.
Me2 Club would like to let everyone know that although they are not currently able to get young people started at activities with volunteers, their waiting list is still very much open and they are still accepting applications, ready to get going again as soon as it is safe to do so.
Please consider joining our Facebook Parent Forum as we can use this as a tool to support each other and swap general tips of how we are all coping in these austere times.
Me2 Club support young people aged 5-19 with additional needs and disabilities to take part in mainstream after school activities. They do this by recruiting and training volunteers to ‘buddy’ with young people at the activities so they can join in and have fun. For full details visit: https://me2club.org.uk/about-us/
Me2 has expanded into the Reading Borough area!
Me2 Club is an inclusion charity for children and young people with additional needs and disabilities. We have been supporting families in Wokingham for over 15 years and have recently expanded into the Reading Borough. Our purpose is to tackle the social isolation and loneliness experienced by children who are not able to access mainstream leisure activities. We are unique as we do not require a formal diagnosis to offer support.
We support children and young people aged 5-19 to take part in mainstream activities by recruiting and training volunteers to ‘buddy’ 1:1 with them (2:1 when required) so they can join in and have fun. With our help children can access a wide range of activities including sports clubs, uniformed groups and drama classes, giving them a chance to build independence and vital life and social skills.
We have a variety of additional services and projects available to children and young people who are supported by Me2 Club volunteers including:
Me2 Club Teenage Meet Ups
Family Parties at Christmas, Easter and during the Summer.
Me2 Club also runs an Inclusion Training Project for activity leaders, which aims to increase the inclusion of young people with additional needs into mainstream leisure activities.
We accept referral from professional, or families can self-refer using the registration form on our website https://me2club.org.uk/about-us/ once they have a place at an activity or are on a waiting list for an activity.
