JAM Card 1600x700What is JAM Card and who is it for?

JAM Card allows people with a communication barrier tell others they need ‘Just A Minute’ discreetly and easily.

The JAM Card© was created by NOW Group, a social enterprise that supports people with learning difficulties and autism into jobs with a future and their service users told them that they would like a way to relay to people that they need a little extra time or patience.

Find out more about NOW Group at www.nowgroup.org and JAM Card© at www.jamcard.org.

There are 3 message options to choose from:

1) Please be patient, I have autism

2) Please be patient, I have a learning disability/difficulty

3) Please be patient, I have a condition

For those with a learning difficulty, autism or any condition where there can be a communication barrier, the JAM Card allows users to relay to others that they may need a little extra time in a simple, effective non-verbal manner. The JAM Card is useful when on public transport, in a retail or any other customer facing environment.

Or if you would prefer not to use the physical card, there is a JAM Card app available for Android and iOS. The app allows you to choose your message option, leave reviews and find other JAM friendly businesses.
