Young people’s e-zine “Amazine”

Check out our new e-zine for young people with additional needs in Brighton & Hove and East Sussex!

We recently launched our new online magazine “Amazine” for young people with special educational needs and disabilities in Brighton & Hove and East Sussex! It’s bright and colourful, with loads of photos and drawings.

Young people at our Amazing Futures groups came up with the idea for the magazine, and it was planned and created with lots of input from young people from the groups.
