young people’s advisory group

Young people with additional needs are at the centre of everything we do at Amaze. The young people’s advisory group is a way for you to get involved and tell Amaze how we can help you.

The groups are a fun chance to get your voice heard, and affect the decisions Amaze makes.

You don’t have to go to every session, just the ones that interest you.

What happens at advisory group sessions?

There are some activities and short games to help everyone have fun and get involved.

We will ask you a few simple questions, for example we might show you different leaflets and ask which ones you like best, or ask which social media you like to use.

Everyone has different opinions, so it can be really interesting finding out what everyone thinks and talking together.

Who can take part?

Anyone in Brighton & Hove aged 14-25 with additional needs of any kind, for example autism, learning disabilities, mental health difficulties, or physical disabilities.

We ask young people in East Sussex for their views as well by meeting with East Sussex groups for young people with disabilities, like the Able Group.
