Welcome to the parents page
Here you will find further information on applying for support, a list of mainstream activity clubs in the local area, information on other local support services and stories from the families that we support.
Referring your child
If you 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
The Matching Process
You will always have an allocated AVC who will check in with how everything is going and discuss any issues with you.
In addition to our core service, Me2 Club offer ‘Days Away’ and ‘Weekends Away’ 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.
