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.
If you would like further information or to make a Workshop booking, please contact us.
Each workshop is designed to reach a class of up to 35 pupils.
Many Workshop Presenters have a Personal Support Assistant with them to support them in their work.
Yes, at the end of each workshop there is time set aside for questions to be asked.
Yes, we can spend more than one day at your school to ensure that we have seen all your pupils.
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.
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.
Our workshops are delivered either in person or via Zoom. We can therefore deliver zoom workshops across the country to any school that is interested.
To see if we can visit your area in person it is best to contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your query.
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.
