East of England

Avenues first worked in the East of England when we started to manage services in Cambridge in 1998.

Our presence in the region grew significantly in 2011 when Optua became part of Avenues. Suffolk is where Optua UK, also now part of Avenues, first established its support and case management services for people with acquired brain injury.  

We have a base in Ipswich and provide residential, outreach and supported living services across the East of England, as well as Community Support Services.


Paul Attrill, Regional Director

What things are you most proud of in your services?

“What we do goes beyond typical social care. We are very involved in community engagement – for example we have a team that develops leisure programmes and events. These are incredibly inspirational to attend. Families are often overwhelmed by what their children have been able to achieve with us. Our teams never give up. What they need to do can change on a day to day basis but they don’t let up.”
