Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement

JustDifferent would like to wish all our supporters and school partners well in this difficult time of COVID-19. We hope that your business, jobs, families and school children/young people remain safe and look forward to working with you again as soon as possible. As the rest of the country has done, we have postponed our events until later in the year in order to halt the spread of the virus, and we will be in touch with you all once we have new dates.

We continue to deeply appreciate your support, both financially and through corporate and community partnerships, past, present and into the future. We are going to use this time to innovate our services and broaden our offering to businesses as well as schools. Please do let us know if you would like any information in the meantime for workshops as soon as schools/businesses are able to re-open for business as usual. Best wishes from all the team at JustDifferent.

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.
