Event info:

Amazing Futures groups and peer support [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, drama, an LGBTQ+ group, and so much more.

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:
