Amazing Futures groups and peer support – autumn 2021 [Brighton & Hove and East Sussex]

Event info:

Amazing Futures groups and peer support - autumn 2021 [Brighton & Hove and East Sussex]

Amazing Futures is for young people aged 14 to 25 with SEND, living in Brighton & Hove or East Sussex.

We run face to face peer support activity groups for young people with additional needs. There’s loads on offer, including games, art, seafront walks, an LGBTQ+ group, and so much more.

Our friendly groups are a great opportunity to meet people your age, and get involved in a range of activities. You can talk to our trained peer support volunteers at the groups too. They won’t try to tell you what to do, just listen and support you to find your own solutions to your problems.

Check out what’s coming up this autumn:

East Sussex

We are currently running support groups in Eastbourne and Bexhill, meeting face-to-face, indoors, observing Covid-safety guidance. We take part in a range of activities, including games, art, and discussions. There are multiple small groups running each week, with allocated places.

Coming up this autumn, we also have:

  • A young person only neon disco in October
