Me2 have resumed our core service of matching children with volunteers at mainstream activity clubs. Once parents have an activity planned they can register with us by completing the form on our website https://me2club.org.uk/family-advice-and-support/. By planned this means that they have identified what activity they want to do and have been in touch with the provider to enquire about availability. We have some information about activities in the local area on our website https://me2club.org.uk/local-activity-clubs/
We accept referrals from professionals, 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.
We ask that professionals wait to complete the form until the family has chosen their activity and that they include their details in the details of child’s additional needs section of the form so we can contact them if we need to and so that we know who the referral has come from.
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. 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.
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.
