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.

We always need new partners in local communities to support our work in schools and colleges and wider local groups.
We work with many local organisations to provide funding for our workshops in schools, colleges and across local communities.
For example we work with Guide, Scout and Cub groups, Woman’s Institutes, Rotary club and local businesses to raise funds – so that we can help move particular project(s) forward.
We have been successfully fundraising in schools for the past 10 years. Some of the fundraising is to support the delivery of specific workshop programmes. We also receive support from schools to further develop our wider work in the community.
We often help schools develop their own fundraising programmes for our work by working directly with school staff, pupils and parents. These can include anything from cake sales through to supporting specific fundraising events.
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.
