Amaze services now offering online support

Due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve had to be creative with how we can continue to provide our support services during this time, that’s why we’re now offering online sessions with our various projects. Take a look below to see if you’d like to get involved in any of the sessions.

Amaze online support sessions

Face2Face Project

  • Breakfast club for parent carers – email louise@amazesussex.org.uk to join.  The group meets regularly for a morning catch up and has recently introduced a theme to help focus the meeting. The next meeting is on Friday 10 July at 10am, followed by Thursdays 23 July and 6 August.
  • Dad’s group – email Darren Walker at dazmonkey72@googlemail.com to join. The group meets on a Thursday evening at 8pm – Contact Darren to find out when the next meeting is. 
  • ASC group – email louise@amazesussex.org.uk to join.  This group is for parents of children under 8 with ASC and will be meeting on Tuesday 14 July at 8pm.

Our Face2Face groups are tailored around parents’ needs, interests and availability, so session timings and content are planned in partnership with parents. The Face2Face Zoom sessions will continue throughout the summer holidays too! If you’d like to get involved in the sessions, email louise@amazesussex.org.uk.
