Beyond the Wall

Beyond The Wall provides work and learning for people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health difficulties, in a friendly and supportive environment.  Set in a beautiful 2 acre Victorian walled garden on the Thornham estate near Eye, we also have access to acres of woodland for exercise and nature study.

Our mission is to help people with additional needs to live the healthy and fulfilling life they want to lead, through…..

Nature – daily contact with the garden and or the surrounding woodlands

Health – encouraging healthy choices for people and the planet

Community – being part of the community, and the community feeling part of the garden

Gardening – learning horticulture as a life skill/work skill and helping maintain the garden for visitors to enjoy

Independence – doing things for yourself, proactively asking for help when needed and making informed choices.

We offer a range of different activities including;

Horticulture, Food Skills, Work Preparation, Life Skills, Personal and Social Development, Yoga and Health Walks, Leisure and Recreation.
