Based in Brighton, Amaze offers information, advice and support to parents and carers of children and young people with special needs or disabilities.
Caring for children with disabilities can lead to severe financial hardship and social isolation - 40 per cent of familes with disabled children are living in poverty. Amaze helps families access the financial help they need as well as providing a range of dedicated support.
What the judges thought
'Amaze is a fantastic example of how a small, community-based organisation can provide valuable health care support for local families. Its network is extraordinarily impressive, including engagement with 61 groups and it has helped give families with children with disabilities and special needs a voice.'
