Welcome to the parents page
COVID-19 Update – As most of you will be aware many activities like uniform groups (Scouts, Brownies etc) have been cancelled and it is likely, listening to government guidelines around gatherings, that other activities will be cancelled by the end of the week. To follow the government guidelines regarding working from home and reducing social contact, we have taken the decision to temporarily suspend all home visits, activity visits, family events and the Me2 Club Team will be working remotely.
We understand it will be a difficult time for our parents and families, please consider joining our Facebook Parent Forum as we can use this as a tool to support each other and swap general tips of how we are all coping in these austere times. Please note all staff are still working and available via email and mobile phones.
Referring your child
If you live in the Wokingham Borough and would like one of our volunteers to support your child at a mainstream activity club, you can apply by downloading the form below and returning it to email@example.com.
In 2019 we announced that Me2 Club is moving from a Wokingham Borough charity to a Berkshire charity, starting initially with Reading Borough. Following extensive research and planning, in November 2019 we began a phased expansion into Reading Borough, initially accepting applications from the 5 wards of Church, Katesgrove, Park, Redlands and Whitley. In March 2020 we made the exciting decision to expand further and are now accepting applications from Abbey, Battle, Minster, Norcot and Southcote. In the future we want to work with families throughout the Reading Borough so please get in touch to register your interest as this will help with our planning process.
We often have a waiting list of children who need a volunteer, so once we have received your application, we will let you know roughly how long we think it will be until we are able to offer support.
We encourage parents to start looking at activities prior to applying for a volunteer as this helps speed up the process. We support children and young people to get involved in mainstream activity clubs and do not provide volunteers for groups specifically aimed at young people with additional needs. Currently our volunteers are only able to support on weekdays except for in exceptional circumstances which needs Trustee board approval.
If you have any questions please get in touch or read our FAQs here.
The Matching Process
In addition to our core service, Me2 Club offer ‘Days Away’, ‘Weekends Away’ and Teenage meet-ups of the Me2 Club Crew for our young people and their volunteers throughout the year. These are an opportunity for the young people and their volunteers to spend more time together, build a stronger relationship and for our young people to take part in lots of fun 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 an opportunity for our families and young people to meet each other and spend time in a friendly and non-judgemental environment, whilst having lots of fun. To find out more, please click the links and visit our events page to see upcoming party dates.
