The Independent Support service for East Sussex is delivered by Amaze. Amaze is a Sussex-based charity set up by parent carers to deliver a range of services to families in East Sussex, Brighton and Hove and West Sussex.
Independent Supporters work with families to obtain good quality Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) by ensuring they have all the information they need to take part in the needs assessment. Some of the work we may do may include supporting families to write their contributions to the needs assessment, identify aspirations and possible outcomes to include in the EHCP, going through paperwork, support at meetings and reviewing the draft Plan to get a strong EHCP. Parent carers are the experts on their children
We usually work with parent carers but young people (16+) can request their own Independent Supporter. All our team specialise in EHCPs and we can offer support at any stage of the needs assessment.
