Me2 Club - supporting children and teenagers with additional needs to access mainstream activities

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.


COVID-19 Update

We have now resumed our core service and are supporting children to return to their weekly mainstream activity with the help of our volunteers.

We are experiencing a higher than usual level of demand for our service and are prioritising children known to Me2 Club. We are still able to accept new referrals for children, however, new requests for help will be added to a waiting list. Due to COVID-19 and our organisational recovery we cannot guarantee a time frame to take forward new referrals. A member of our team will contact you when we are able to offer your child a service.

Description

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:

  • ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Autism
  • 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?

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.
