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.

COVID-19 Update

We have now resumed our core service and will be supporting children to return to their weekly mainstream activity with the help of our volunteers.

We are experiencing a higher than usual level of demand for our service and are prioritising children known to Me2 Club. We are still able to accept new referrals for children, however, new requests for help will be added to a waiting list. Due to COVID-19 and our organisational recovery we cannot guarantee a time frame to take forward new referrals. A member of our team will contact you when we are able to offer your child a service.
