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.
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.
