Being Heard

Being Heard is Thera’s way of empowering and supporting people to say how they feel. Being Heard makes sure you understand you have the right to be listened to.

Thera East has 4 Being Heard groups across Essex and Suffolk. These groups are in:

  • Bury St Edmunds
  • Colchester
  • Harwich
  • Brentwood

The groups meet once a week, giving people the opportunity to talk about things which affect their lives.

Your Service Quality Director, Graham Skidmore, will attend these groups at least once a year but you will always have a Being Heard Champion to talk to.

Do you want to attend a Being Heard group or become a Being Heard Champion?

Please contact Graham Skidmore and his Executive Assistant, Bridie Stanford by email: and
