Welcome to Me2 Club

Me2 Club is an inclusion charity for children and young people with additional needs and disabilities in the Wokingham and Reading Boroughs. We support children and young people aged 5-19 to take part in mainstream leisure 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 they can access a wide range of activities including sports clubs, uniformed groups and drama classes. We do not require a formal diagnosis to offer support.
