“It’s good practice for me to trust other people to care for her and know she will be fine”. (Me2 Club parent)
Plus, a grant of £4,390, from the Youth Social Action Fund (managed by Berkshire Community Foundation), to fund the recruitment, training and support of 10 new volunteers.
“Without them we wouldn’t be able to accommodate girls with additional needs. The volunteer support is very valuable – we can see how parents appreciate what their daughters get out of going to guides.” (Activity Leader)
In addition to their core work Me2 Club also runs residential ‘Weekends Away’ and Inclusion Training for local Activity Leaders.
The generosity of Berkshire Community Foundation has been invaluable and we look forward to continuing our work together in creating a more inclusive community for all.
