We rely on the support, expertise and enthusiasm of volunteers to help run Amaze and to provide the best support for families

There are lots of different ways you can volunteer your time to support Amaze.

Support parents and carers

If you are a parent or carer, you could use your experience to help other families by becoming a volunteer befriender for our parent groups and befriending service. We recruit and run regular training throughout the year.

We also need SENDIASS volunteers who can attend important meetings with parent carers or help them to fill in forms. Training for this type of volunteering tends to only happen once a year so if you are interested, email [email protected]

Support young people

Our Amazing Futures project needs young people aged 18-25 to volunteer as peer supporters or peer coaches for our Amazing Futures project for young people with SEND. It’s great way for young people to grow their confidence and learn new skills, plus it looks great on a CV. 

Become a trustee

Our volunteer trustees take overall responsibility for the direction and management of the charity.

We are always keen to hear from anyone who may be interested in becoming a trustee. We particularly welcome trustees who are have lived experience of SEND, either as a parent carer or an adult with SEND. We also welcome trustees who can bring other life or professional experience to the organisation. For example, trustees with experience of financial management or human resources can be invaluable to a charity like Amaze.

“I had run out of hope. Life was so bleak and relentless. I had been filling out paperwork for years and getting almost nowhere. Being a single mum of 2 kids with complex needs means I am already managing far more than is comfortable. Feeding autistic kids with allergies via a foodbank is tough, travelling to appointments on buses, watching every penny and the fear of breaking things I can’t afford to replace.  

“I had no idea how much pressure that was creating until I got support from Amaze to successfully claim DLA for my kids. I am a nicer mum as I am not nagging as much. I am able to make life much more accessible for my highly anxious kids.”
