Charitable Activities Re-Start Statement

During the past six months, JustDifferent have been waiting patiently to re-start our work raising awareness of Difference and Disability in schools across the country. With the beginning of the new term upon us, we are thrilled to be able to say we are up and running and again able to deliver workshops to Primary and Secondary Schools. Recognising that there are still guidelines in place to adhere to with regard to keeping pupils, teachers and families safe from the spread of Covid-19, some changes have been made to the planning of our workshops and it would be our pleasure to work with you to find ways to continue to change negative attitudes and inspire individuals to maximise their potential. We will build on our impact achieved over 12 years in continued partnership with schools, local businesses and communities.

Why we started

Conceived in 2006 and launched in 2008 by its founder, Toby Hewson (a young man with cerebral palsy), JustDifferent was formed to make a positive difference to the lives of both disabled and non disabled people. JustDifferent employs a team of disabled workshop presenters who have created and delivered disability and difference workshops in to mainstream schools since 2008. In 2018 we expanded our offer to include workplace workshops available to businesses.

Support our work

Financial support is vital in allowing us to recruit workshop presenters with disabilities across the UK. Without them we cannot expand our reach and deliver more workshops in schools and businesses.
