Beyond Ourselves

Barnes Roffe Leytonstone office sponsor 10 children in Zambia at the Greater Joy School through a Charity organisation called Beyond Ourselves based in Loughton, Essex.

Below are some details about the Charity and the work that it does.

About Beyond Ourselves

The Restore Centre opened in 2012, with the provision of a shop on Debden Broadway. The idea emerged out of conversations with the local council, as we asked them what the church could best do to serve the local community.

Since then we’ve become a well-known community hub in Debden, supporting hundreds of people to find their way through various issues, from alcoholism to homelessness to mental health, and connecting them with partner organisations and services. We have also provided a vital place of safety and welcome for those struggling with isolation and loneliness, as well as enabling opportunities for community engagement and ‘giving back’.

Since opening the Centre new opportunities have come our way and we have been able to support local families with a parent and toddler group called Noah’s Ark, open a community garden we call GROW and start a local Foodbank.


We are partnering with community schools in Zambia to help bring much needed education and nutrition to some of the most vulnerable children in those communities.

We support the teaching and senior staff of community schools, by offering training and professional development with the aim that they will be able to offer a high standard of education and enable these children to reach their potential and ultimately to break the cycle of poverty.

100% of the child sponsorship money raised goes to the schools we partner with in Zambia.

Beyond your Business

Beyond Ourselves is partnering with businesses in the UK offering them the opportunity to connect with educational, community and enterprise projects in the UK and internationally. It has been our experience that when a business decides to engage with wider issues they not only make a difference to the project they are partnering with but there is also a positive impact on their business.

We are always interested in hearing from businesses that would like to share their skills and training expertise as well as their financial resources.
