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.

Workshop FAQ

How many children can you see at a time?

Will the Workshop Presenter have a helper with them?

Many Workshop Presenters have a Personal Support Assistant with them to support them in their work.

Will the pupils be able to ask the Workshop Presenter questions?

Yes, at the end of each workshop there is time set aside for questions to be asked.

We are a very large school, can you visit for more than one day?

Yes, we can spend more than one day at your school to ensure that we have seen all your pupils.

Will the Workshop Presenter scare the children?

We have never known any of our Workshop Presenters to scare any children, yes children can be anxious at facing the unfamiliar but this is why we do the work we do, to change how they feel and think about difference and disability.

What is included in the workshop?

Each workshop is designed and created by the Workshop Presenter.  A presentation shows children and young people how they do the same everyday tasks as non disabled people do, just differently. Practical tasks such as trying a wheelchair, a quiz and the opportunity to ask questions.

Which area do you cover?

Our workshops are delivered across South East, London, Yorkshire and the Humber. However we do receive enquiries from areas outside of those mentioned.

To see if we can visit your area it is best to contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your query.

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.
