JAM Card available from 25th November - helping public transport users who need Just A Minute
11 November 2019
JAM (Just a Minute) 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 nowgroup.org and JAM Card at jamcard.org.
For those with a learning difficulty, autism, Asperger’s 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.
There are 3 message options to choose from:
- Please be patient, I have autism or Asperger’s
- Please be patient, I have a learning disability or difficulty
- Please be patient, I have a condition
