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.

  • Discussing the different types of disability
  • Activities
  • Quiz
  • Q&A Session

Why should I book this?

Each workshop is thought provoking, inspiring and engaging. We include activities, group discussions and the opportunity for students to ask questions.

Testimonial from Haringey Learning Partnership Executive Headteacher, November 2020

I first came across JustDifferent in 2015 and organised for Toby to come into school and deliver workshops to groups of students. The workshops were fantastic and really helped to challenge perceptions and change student attitudes towards people with disabilities.

This Disability History Month (2020) we rebooked workshops with Toby. Due to the global pandemic these workshops had to be delivered online via Zoom. It was great to see how students engaged with the online workshops. They enjoyed meeting Toby and having the opportunity to ask him plenty of questions. The workshops were thought-provoking and informative and the mixture of discussion and activities were perfect for keeping students engaged.

The feedback that we received from students and staff following the sessions was excellent. Everyone found Toby’s openness and honesty really powerful and said that they felt that he created a safe space in which they could ask questions and really learn about his life. We’re confident that Toby’s workshop really inspired our students to stand up for equality, respect and human dignity for every disabled person, in their schools and in the rest of their lives.

Thank you Toby and everyone at JustDifferent – the work that you are doing is so important.

What does it cost?

It costs JustDifferent £500 per day to deliver our service. We do not receive any Government funding to support our work and therefore rely on grants from Trusts & Foundations, Businesses, Community Groups and individuals to contribute to the total cost and we ask that the school contribute the remaining cost.
