Volunteer with Amazing Futures

Would you like to volunteer with Amazing Futures as a peer supporter?

Volunteering as a peer supporter can be a good way to grow your confidence and learn new skills, plus it looks great on your CV. It can also be a lot of fun!

Who can volunteer?

  • You must be aged 18-25
  • You must live either in Brighton & Hove, or in East Sussex. (The East Sussex group is in Eastbourne.)
  • You may have special educational needs or disabilities (SEND), or you may have had experiences that help you understand what it’s like to have SEND

What do volunteer peer supporters do?

Our volunteers support young people aged 14 to 25 with additional needs at our peer support activity groups.

It’s rewarding and you get to meet lots of new people.

They also help out with the groups more generally.

How do I become a peer supporter?

We provide training to help you learn how to support other young people. The training course usually takes around four weeks of weekly sessions. At the end you will get a certificate, plus an Amazing Futures t-shirt and a hooded sweatshirt.

We train new peer supporters a few times a year. When we are looking for new volunteers to train we advertise this at our peer support groups, as well as on our events page and social media.
