Volunteer

We have now resumed our core service of matching children with volunteers at mainstream leisure activities and are in the process of planning our next Volunteer Induction Training.

Do you want to help children with additional needs and disabilities in your local community? Make a difference to a child’s life by volunteering with us and helping our children to be included and make friends.

Volunteer Your Time

Everyone has their own reasons for wanting to donate their time. It could be to give back to the local community, gain valuable experience, learn new skills or the desire to make a difference to a child’s life. Whatever your motivation, you will be part of a friendly team, you will make a difference and have fun at the same time!

Volunteer Roles

What We Do

Children with additional needs and disabilities across Wokingham and Reading are struggling to take part in activities as they need a little extra help to get involved. Our weekly activity volunteers help children make friends, increase their confidence and independence whilst attending a mainstream activity. Our fundraising friends volunteers help at community events such as stalls.

Flexible Roles

Each volunteering role plays an important part in our charity. Some volunteering opportunities require commitment each week, whilst others are monthly or weekend events. However, much time you have, there is a volunteering role for you.

Training and Support

Our experienced staff team will welcome you to the organisation and support you through your journey at Me2 Club. We will help you understand your role, responsibilities and any extra skills you might need when volunteering.

Some of our roles require an enhanced level disclosure check to be completed. These checks form part of our safer recruitment practices and are required for staff or volunteers working with vulnerable groups.

Throughout your volunteering experience you will have on going support from a designated member of the Me2 Club team. You will also receive regular updates about other events and opportunities you may wish to get involved with.

How it works

Our young people want to attend weekly clubs, but their additional needs and disabilities can make it difficult for them to take part in activities that you may take for granted like swimming lessons, Beavers, football, Brownies and more. The level of support our children need varies, due to the range of additional needs they have.

By building a relationship with one of our young people you can help them overcome their barriers to be included.

How it works

With a small staff team, we are always looking for more fundraising volunteers to help us on stalls and spread the word about our work. Events usually take place on a Saturday or Sunday and tend to last for a few hours. Our busiest times are the summer months and the run up to Christmas however we will give you plenty of notice about upcoming events and there is no expectation for you to be available for all of them.

By becoming a Fundraising Friend you will be helping us to raise the valuable funds needed to support children and young people across Wokingham and Reading.

Fill in our application form today! Sometimes it will be necessary to take up references and undergo a DBS check.
