Where to go for support and advice is Brighton

Amaze

Amaze gives information, advice and support to young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and to parents of children and young people with SEND, in Brighton and Hove. Young people can apply for a Compass Card (a leisure card for 0 to 24s that provides free deals and discounts across Brighton and Hove and West Sussex). The card is available for children and young people with significant disabilities or special educational needs; most will have an EHC Plan, or be in receipt of DLA or PIP. There are over 130 Compass Card offers plus special offers at local entertainment venues. Visit the Compass website www.compasscard.org.uk to find out more about offers and how to apply. There is one to one advice and support for young people age 16 plus who are in the process of getting an Education Health and Care (EHC) plan because they have special educational needs. This Independent Support service is open to young people together with or separately from their parents. EHC plans are replacing Statements of SEN and Moving On plans. Help with disability benefits (DLA and PIP claims) available for parents and young people together or for young people living independently. Amaze has a peer support project for young people with SEND age 14 and over and runs a self-advocacy group for young people with learning disabilities aged 16 – 24 (with Speak Out).
