Who can volunteer?

  • must be aged 18-25 
  • must live either in Brighton & Hove, or in East Sussex 
  • may have special educational needs or disabilities (SEND), or may have had experiences that help them understand what it’s like to have SEND 

What do volunteer peer supporters and peer coaches do?

  • Peer supporters support young people at our groups by listening and empowering them to come up with solutions that work for them 
  • Peer coaches support young people at our Amazingly Active exercise programme in East Sussex 

Volunteers also help out with the groups more generally.  

It’s rewarding, fun, and a great way to meet lots of new people. 

How to become a peer supporter

We provide training to help our volunteers learn how to support other young people. The training course usually takes around four weeks of weekly sessions. At the end they will get a certificate, plus an Amazing Futures t-shirt and hoodie. 

We train new peer supporters a few times a year. When we are looking for new volunteers to train we advertise this at our peer support groups, as well as on our events page and social media.
