Who we are

Amaze is a charity that gives information, advice and support to families of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Brighton & Hove and Sussex. We also support young people with SEND up to 25.


The role

​The Board of Trustees has, and must accept responsibility for, directing the affairs of Amaze, ensuring it is solvent and well managed, and that it acts within its charitable ‘objects’.

Trustees are expected to support the strategic direction of Amaze but are not expected to be involved in day-to-day operational considerations.

​Members of Amaze’s Board of Trustees will require:

· A commitment to the vision, values, aims and objectives of Amaze and to promoting the interests of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities and their families.

· A willingness to devote time and effort to the work of the Board and the capacity to (prepare for and) attend regular meetings and contribute to the work in between meetings, e.g. via email.

· The ability to exercise sound and independent judgement while working effectively as a member of a team.

· To be over the age 16 or over

· A demonstrable understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship and an appreciation of the personal implications.

· A demonstrable commitment to the seven principles outlined in the charity code: organisational purpose, leadership, integrity, decision making/risk/control, board effectiveness, diversity, openness & accountability – see https://www.charitygovernancecode.org/en/front-page

The specific skills and experience that are required by the Board to ensure that, collectively, it has the breadth and depth of expertise it needs to fulfil its governance and oversight role.
