Me2 Club - supporting children and teenagers with additional needs
Who do we support?
Me2 Club support children and teenagers aged from 5 to 19 years old, living in the Wokingham and Reading Boroughs. The children we support have a range of additional needs including:
- Challenging behaviour
- Speech & Language issues
We do not require children to have any formal diagnosis to receive our service, if they need a bit of extra support, we can help!
What do we offer?
One to one volunteers
We offer a child with additional needs a matched volunteer buddy who can support them at a mainstream activity once a week. Families are supported by an Activities and Volunteers Coordinator who get to know each child and match them up with a volunteer who is available and can get to the location of the child’s activity. Volunteers are also matched on personality, needs, experience and other factors and are provided free of charge.
Please note we cannot support at activities which are set up specifically for additional needs. Activities must be mainstream sessions running Monday – Friday. The children attend a wide variety of activities such as swimming lessons, gymnastics, uniform groups, sports clubs and drama. Once you have an activity set up or are waiting for a place you can register your child for our support.
For more information and to complete a registration form visit our website.
