Amaze launches crowdfunder to support disabled young people

Amaze has launched a crowdfunding campaign for its work supporting young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) across Sussex.

The Sussex charity’s campaign Amazing Futures is its youth work project supporting young people with SEND across Brighton & Hove and East Sussex.

The Amazing Futures project helps young people with SEND tackle barriers they face by supporting them to come together, make friends, have fun, try new activities, learn and be unapologetically themselves.

The crowdfunder includes rewards donated by businesses and organisations across Brighton and Hove and East Sussex which include:

  • i360 Tickets
  • Amaze Merchandise
  • Family tickets to Drusillas Park
  • Vouchers for Donatello and Alcampo Lounge
  • Dual rider vouchers on Brighton Zip
  • Tickets to Boulder Brighton

CEO of Amaze, Sally Polanski, said: “Young people tell us time and time again that having the opportunity to be with their peers in a fun, safe and inclusive space is life-changing, in helping them to develop skills and grow in confidence as they prepare for adulthood.

“We are so proud of our Amazing Futures project which has been created with young people and supported by our staff and volunteers with lived experience of SEND.
We are grateful for all donations to this crowdfunder appeal, big or small, which will help to sustain this vital service, and hopefully grow it, so that we can support more young people with additional needs in Sussex for years to come.”
