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 SENDIASS

Join a couple of our SENDIASS team and other parents at a virtual drop-in session every Thursday at 2.30pm. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions, find out the latest information and hear from other parents too. Email sendiass@amazesussex.org.uk to get your invitation to join us for this session.

We’ve also been getting lots of calls from parent carers about Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) so Amaze SENDIASS will be running a Zoom drop-in to answer your questions.

Should you request an assessment? How do you give your views? What outcomes do you want? How can you appeal? This is your chance to chat to two of our SENDIASS team between 3.30-4.30 on Wednesday 20th May. 

To book to attend this session please email SENDIASS@amazesussex.org.uk and we will send you details of how to join the Zoom Meeting
