Challengers Reading Youthscheme

Following guidance from the Government with regard to the coronavirus (COVID-19), before attending an activity, group, drop in, course or event listed on our directory please contact the organisation who is running the service to ensure it is still taking place.

Challengers Reading Youthscheme is our programme for young people , 13 -18, living in Reading and Wokingham. It is a place where young people can get out & about, make friends and try loads of new activities. There are spaces at every Youthscheme for young people who need 1:1 support and who have complex impairments. There are lots of fab, trained, energetic Challengers staff so there is always someone to be with.

Reading Youthschemes run every Saturday. In addition we run programmes on week days during half term and during the Summer & Easter holidays. Our full  Youthscheme programme can be found online.  

If you are a new parent, you will first need to register with Challengers. To do that, visit our Challengers Booking Website or call the Booking Line on 01483 230 939. You will then be asked to complete a ‘First Visit’ at Reading Youthscheme – this is so that you can meet the team and see the scheme in action. Once you have attended a First Visit, you will be able to book sessions for all Challengers Youthschemes, including Reading.

There is also a similar scheme in Basingstoke.
