“I worried I was not the ‘right type’ of person for this role, that maybe I was too shy or not confident enough, or that it wouldn’t work for this or that reason. But at training I remember a child’s mum talking of the ‘very special’ friendship that develops between the child and their volunteer, and it was great! I wanted that to happen for me too. There is really no special knowledge that is really important to have apart from what you’ve learnt so far in life and what the training will teach you! There is no ‘volunteer’ type person. Everyone can be a great volunteer and enjoy a great experience with Me2 Club!” – Me2 Club Volunteer
Children with additional needs and disabilities across Wokingham and the surrounding areas are struggling to take part in activities as they need a little extra help to take part. By volunteering with Me2 Club, you can help these children make friends, increase their confidence and independence whilst learning valuable skills yourself!

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.
By becoming friends with one of our young people you can help them overcome their barriers to be included.

In addition to volunteering at an activity, Me2 Club volunteers are also given the opportunity to come on our ‘Days Away’ and ‘Weekends Away’ with their Me2 Club young person. These are an opportunity for the young person and their volunteer to spend more time together, build a stronger relationship and for everyone to take part in lots of exciting activities. To find out more about our trips click the links and visit our events page.
We also run an Easter, Summer and Christmas party each year for our Me2 Club young people, their families and volunteers. These are another opportunity for young people and their volunteers to spend time together in a friendly and non-judgemental environment, whilst having lots of fun.
