What we do
Me2 Club enables children and young people with additional needs and disabilities, aged 5-19, in the Wokingham Borough, to attend mainstream activity clubs. We do this by recruiting, training and developing volunteers to provide 1:1 (2:1 when required) support to the young people at an activity of their choice, from uniformed groups such as Cubs and Brownies, to gymnastics, youth groups or swimming. Me2 Club trained volunteers support young people by encouraging them to be independent, participating in the activities alongside them and adapting activities to ensure they can take part. Currently our volunteers are only able to support on weekdays except for in exceptional circumstances which needs Trustee board approval. If your child would like the support of a Me2 Club Volunteer then simply fill out the application form below. We support young people with a wide range of additional needs and disabilities including Autism, ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, Down’s syndrome, Pathological Demand Avoidance to name a few. We also support young people with mental health, behavioural and emotional difficulties including anxiety. No formal diagnosis is necessary our only requirement is that you are a Wokingham Borough Council resident.
In 2011 Me2 Club was very proud to be awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The Queen’s Award is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen’s coronation and is the MBE for volunteer groups.
