Amaze is delighted to announce that from 1st September we will be providing the SEND Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS) for East Sussex. We are being funded by East Sussex County Council to provide an independent and impartial service that replaces the ‘SEN and Disability Advice Service’ previously run by the council themselves.

Like the Brighton and Hove service we have run for a number of years, East Sussex SENDIASS will offer information, advice and support on anything to do with special educational needs and disability to parent carers of children and young people aged 0-25, and to young people themselves.

Amaze East Sussex SENDIASS will offer:

  • Developments to the Amaze website and its resources so you can find things out for yourself
  • A telephone and email helpline for more tailored information
  • One-to-one advice for more complex issues

East Sussex SENDIASS complements our existing Independent Support work in East Sussex for families updating or applying for Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs).

CEO Rachel Travers says, “Amaze has an excellent reputation among Brighton and Hove families accessing our information, advice and support so we are really pleased to be able to extend this service to more families across East Sussex.”

To speak to an adviser, please call 01273 772289 and select the ‘East Sussex’ option, or alternatively email eastsussex@amazebrighton.org.uk.
