Face2Face Befrienders taster session and training – Crowborough, East Sussex

Event info:

Are you the parent of a child with additional needs or disabilities? Do you feel that you have knowledge and experiences that could help support other parents and carers?  Would you like to take up a valuable and fulfilling role as an Amaze Face2Face befriender?

Face2Face befriending offers emotional peer support to parents of children and young people with additional needs around the time of diagnosis. New befrienders take part in a free intensive training course which runs over 7 weeks and covers listening skills, boundaries, safeguarding and the parent journey.

The training will take place in Crowborough during school hours over October and November, starting October 10th – venue to be confirmed. Come along to our taster session on September 12th to find out more.

Amaze has a team of over 30 befrienders in Brighton & Hove and has recently expanded into East Sussex. “It feels good to know that offering that little bit of support at a crucial time can be the lifeline some families need,” says one of the team.

We particularly welcome applications from dads, grandparents, foster parents and adoptive parents to bring their experience to the team. At the end of training we will agree with you if you will go ahead to be a befriender and we will carry out a DBS (formerly CRB) check at this point.
