Amaze is a charity that gives information, advice and support to families of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Brighton & Hove and Sussex. We also support young people with SEND up to 25 years old by providing a range of information, advice and support services.
We believe that children and young people with SEND and their parents are the experts in their own or their child’s care and we put their views and experience at the heart of everything we do. Our mission is to inform and support parent carers, children and young people with SEND to build their resilience, achieve positive outcomes and ensure their voices are heard.
Our vision is a world where families with children and young people with SEND are valued, included in their community and supported to thrive.
Without the support, expertise and enthusiasm of our volunteers, Amaze would not be able to offer the level of support we do to families across Sussex. You can volunteer for Amaze in a number of ways: either working directly with parents or young people, representing the voice of the SEND community, helping to keep the organisation running smoothly or lending your hand at some of our events. However you choose to volunteer, you will get appropriate training and support for your role and Amaze will pay expenses such as travel costs.
Giveacar proudly supports Amaze as their work helps young people with special educational needs and disabilities to a strong and competent future. The time they dedicate ensures young people can match their friends in the classroom. Your unwanted car can be scrapped or auctioned to help Amaze continue their work. Your donation can provide educational materials needed to help pass key exams. Think of Amaze when donating your unwanted car with Giveacar.
