Amazing Futures peer support activity sessions for young people [East Sussex]

Event info:

Amaze’s Amazing Futures project runs free peer support sessions for young people with additional needs every two weeks in Eastbourne.

We’re training a team of young people (18+) with and without additional needs to be volunteer peer supporters for other young people with additional needs aged 14-25.

They won’t try to tell you what to do, just listen and support you to find your own solutions to your problems.

The group sessions have fun games, and activities like art and cooking. They are an opportunity for everyone to get to know each other and have fun.

We also offer other groups and activities in East Sussex for young people with additional needs, including:

  • the Young Autistic Union in Bexhill for young people with ASC
  • Amazing Futures focus group, for working on our young people’s magazine and creating resources for young people with additional needs

Or if you live in Brighton & Hove, we offer a range of Amazing Futures groups and activities there as well.

Check out our events listing to find upcoming sessions.
