About Us

Me2 Club is an inclusion charity for children and young people with additional needs and disabilities in the Wokingham and Reading Boroughs. Our purpose is to tackle the social isolation and loneliness experienced by children not being able to access mainstream leisure activities. We are unique as we do not require a formal diagnosis to offer support.

We support children and young people aged 5-19 to take part in mainstream 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 children can access a wide range of activities including sports clubs, uniformed groups and drama classes, giving them a chance to build independence and vital life and social skills.

In addition to our Core Service, Me2 Club also run 3 participation projects:

  • TeenW&Rd – Opportunity for young people aged 13-19years to make new friends and to build their independence by choosing, planning and fundraising for activities.
  • Include Me2 – Our Youth Social Action Group for ages 8 – 25 years and their siblings. Supporting young people to raise awareness of additional needs to address the barriers they face in their lives and in their communities.
  • Say YES – Wokingham’s SEND Youth Forum for 8 – 25 year olds.

In 2019, we began offering children in Reading our unique support to attend a weekly activity with one of our committed and passionate volunteers. In 2022-2023, we continued our managed growth to support more children and families than ever before, ensuring inclusion for all.

Last year, our Volunteers gave over 3989 hours supporting children in Reading and Wokingham and helped:

  • 100% of our children to improve their confidence and self-esteem
  • 93% of our children to increase their independence
  • 96% of our children to improve the quality of their relationships
  • 8 children gained enough independence to attend activities without their volunteer
