Me2 Programme

MY Trust's Me2 programme aims to counter the negative attitudes and social barriers that often prevent young people with a disability or additional need from being included in mainstream youth provisions.  This is achieved by bringing together young people with a disability with non-disabled peer mentors.  Placements take place at a local youth provision or leisure activity of the young persons choice.  Placements are 2 hours a week, once a week for a period of up to 20 weeks.  The Me2 programme supports the social model of disability which says that "disability is caused by the way society is organised rather than by a person's impairment or difference".  Mainstream inclusion helps disabled young people in the following ways:



  • To build confidence & self-esteem

  • To encourage independence

  • To improve communication skills

  • To make new friends

  • To participate in new activities
