Karen Bleay - Centre Manager
Having joined Beyond The Wall in May 2019 I have now have the privilege of overseeing the day-to-day running of the centre. It's a beautiful place to work - why not pop in to our café and say hello?
I am passionate about every person feeling valued, cared about and safe; only then can they try new things with confidence and step outside of their comfort zone!
A qualified teacher, I taught in middle and primary schools for several years. I set up a science education business which I ran for five years. It was during this time that I first worked with adults with disabilities and found it to be fulfilling and something I naturally took to. In my previous role as Project Manager for The Befriending Scheme, I set up a care farm and also provided life skills training for our members.
