Service Introduction

Me Too! Club is a programme to enhance the social integration of people with intellectual disabilities (PWIDs) through leisure and befriending activities. It is best suited for PWIDs who cannot participate in community-based services due to health reasons and/or other reasons or would prefer a less intensive programme.

Me Too! Club offers age-appropriate activities that cater to the interests of persons with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities. Activities include:

Weekly leisure/enrichment activities
A series of courses/activities that are of interest to the clients and enhances their well-being.

Monthly outings

Befriending programme

Clients have to join at least one activity between weekly leisure/enrichment activities and monthly outings. Befriending is an optional service that clients can opt out from.
