Thera East supports people with a learning disability in Essex and Suffolk.

Our vision is that people with a learning disability can be leaders.

Our Service Quality Director, Graham Skidmore, has a learning disability. He checks that you get good support from Thera East.

We can help you to be happy, healthy and independent.

We can support you in your home, in the community and for short breaks.
