Covid-19 Update


In order to keep our members, staff and volunteers safe, our day service is currently being delivered online instead of in person.  This is likely to continue until mid-February, but will be kept under review and if we can re-open safely before then, we will.


  We are still able to provide many of the activities we have always done thanks to the ingenuity and creativity of our staff.

We regret that the Walled Garden and Glasshouse Tearooms are closed to the public until further notice and all public events are postponed.  


 You will find a lot of information about us and the people we work with. If you do not find what you want please contact us and we will see how we can help you.

Beyond The Wall is a charity based in the 'Walled Garden'  on the Thornham Estate in Thornham, North Suffolk. We work with people from 16 years upwards who have a disability. The team are focused on removing barriers to enable everyone to attain a fulfilling and meaningful life. We are a 'not for profit' organisation, all funds raised go to meet the needs of our clients. 

Our aim is to build up our learners’ confidence and self esteem while teaching them the skills which will unlock future opportunities for them in mainstream education, sheltered volunteering or employment.

As a board we are committed to the work of the charity and ensuring the vision we have is achieved.

We are always interested in people who would like to support us either as a volunteer or as a trustee.

We try to be as independent as possible so we let our beautiful garden and marquee for weekend events. A very good way of supporting us and having a great time as well!
