Me2 Club enables children and young people with additional needs to take part in a mainstream leisure activity of their choice. We work throughout Wokingham Borough.
The Me2 Club enables children and young people with additional needs to access mainstream out-of-school activities from which they may otherwise be excluded as a result of their high support needs. This is achieved with the support and commitment of young volunteers who are trained and supported by the Me2 Club. Having been matched with a child and their family, the volunteer gives his/her time to attend the chosen activity (such as brownies, sports club, art group) each week and ensures that the child is able to participate, have fun and be safe. Over time the volunteer becomes a friend and mentor for the child and helps to promote a more inclusive society in which children with additional needs are more easily able to play and interact with other children and benefit from being involved in a range of activities.
Me2 Club aims to:
- Me2 Club children will be less socially isolated, developing confidence and self-esteem as a result of being able to access age appropriate, main stream activities within their local area.
- Me2 Club children will have the opportunity to develop the skills which will enable them to communicate and socially interact with their peers.
- Me2 Club children will become more independent, and families will feel more supported, as a result of our help at mainstream activities, 'Weekends Away'' and annual summer outing and Christmas party.
