"Me2 Club has given my son some much craved for independence from having parents with him at clubs. We are able to have some respite and breathing space"

Welcome to the parents page

COVID-19 Update – In line with government guidance, activity groups such as sports sessions, uniform groups, and swimming lessons have been suspended until further notice. The Me2 Club Team have also suspended all face to face activities and are working remotely, with staff still available via email and mobile phones. Me2 Club is still accepting registration forms, ready for when it is safe to resume.

We are still here for our families and have a number of resources which are available to all children who were supported by us prior to the pandemic. We are running weekly online activity groups and have sent out activity packs to every family who said they would benefit from one. We are also sharing useful resources on our Facebook Parent Forum.

We are appealing for help to enable us to continue supporting our vulnerable families now and when we can restart our face-to-face activities. Please donate by going to: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/me2clubscovid19responseappeal.

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 our families.

Referring your child

If you live in the Wokingham or Reading 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 info@me2club.org.uk.

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

Additional services

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.

“My son looks forward for Wednesday to come so he can meet his volunteer and play badminton with him. Every week I see the progress in him. Thank you very much Me2 club for making my son happy.”
