Amazing Futures – Tuesday group [Eastbourne]

Event info:

Amaze’s Amazing Futures project runs free peer support sessions in small friendly groups for young people with additional needs in East Sussex.

We’ve trained 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 socially-distanced group sessions have activities like art, games and friendly discussions. They are an opportunity for everyone to get to know each other and have fun.

Because of Covid, we have to keep the groups small. Currently we are running three groups in Eastbourne, and one group in Bexhill:

  • Tuesday group (Eastbourne)
  • Thursday group A (Eastbourne)
  • Thursday group B (Eastbourne)
  • Wednesday group (Bexhill)

The groups meet every two weeks.

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.

How to book

Contact Claire Piper on 07484 915038 or email claire@amazesussex.org.uk if you are interested in coming along or would like to volunteer as a peer supporter.

If you have any questions about the ways we are keeping everyone as safe as possible from Covid-19, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Places are free, but spots are very limited, due to the small size of each group.

If it’s your first session, you will need to register:
