Our aim is to enhance the lives of adults with a learning disability and prevent the issues caused by lack of social interaction and stimulation. We support adults with a wide range of disabilities to lead a fulfilling life through increased choice, independence and new skills.
We support families to understand how to access our services by providing information, home visits and free taster sessions.
We now offer opportunities to create and sell your own artwork with the skilled support of our Artist Tutor. To find out more about our new Zest Creations project, visit Zest Creations Facebook page.

Zest has helped to fill a gap identified by Peterborough City Council in meeting the need for support for adults with a learning disability in the BME communities. Zest offers a unique awareness of the importance of each individual’s culture and respect for diverse cultures as part of each person’s individual plan.
Zest was founded in 2013 by Erum Ali, an experienced teacher with BSc Honours in Education who has specialised in teaching adults with disabilities in further education. Erum is passionate about using her skills and experience to create opportunities for adults with a learning disability to lead more fulfilling lives by promoting choice, dignity and independence in a learning environment. The service has been developed with a unique awareness of the importance of each individual’s culture.
Zest was delighted with the offical opening in March 2013 and were pleased to welcome the Peterborough MP Stewart Jackson, Peterborough Mayor John Peach and Peterborough City Councillor M.Nadeem. We received positive feedback from MP Stewart Jackson who commented “This is a unique service in our local Peterborough area”. We would like to thank all those who attended and supported us to make this project a success.
