Thera's Trust's vision is that people with a learning disability can be leaders in society. Thera believes that they are the only large provider organisation in the country that employs paid directors with a learning disability.
Thera provides staff support and specialist services to enable them to engage fully in society and have personal control and choice in their lives as equal citizens in their local community.
Most of the work that Thera undertakes is delivered under contracts with around 50 local authorities across England and Scotland which account for 99% of the Charity's income. Thera has a long standing relationship with most of their local authority customers.
Some key statistics from Thera's work so far, Thera:
- supports over 1,800 people across England and Scotland
- has supported people with a learning disability for 17 years
- pays the majority of its support staff above the proposed national living wage
