12 hours per week

Amaze is a Sussex-based charity that supports families with children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Face2Face is our parent peer support and befriending service.
We are looking for a warm and well-organised person to join the Face2Face team and run the project in East Sussex. You will support volunteer parents to act as befrienders to other parents of disabled children, individually and through groups.
The East Sussex part of Face2Face is still new and developing so you need to be a self-starter who wants to help build the project. You need to be an excellent communicator, who can engage with all sorts of people.
You will have a grasp of the lives and needs of families that include a child with SEND, probably through personal experience, and be keen to make a difference.
You will work out of Amaze’s Eastbourne office, but will need to be able to travel all over East Sussex.
The deadline for applications is 12 midday on Tuesday 21st April. Please save Wednesday 29th April for interviews but in the current climate this may be delayed or interviews may be held virtually. Application packs can be downloaded below:
You are warmly encouraged to contact us for an informal discussion about the role – call 01273 234020 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange this.
