JAM Card E Training

JAM Card E Training

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is currently rolling out JAM Card E-Learning Sessions to small businesses, charities and community groups who operate in the District.

By signing up staff and volunteers will be more aware of what the JAM Card stands for, as well as some helpful tips to make services more accessible for people with disabilities. The training has been funded by the Public Health Agency, through the Access & Inclusion Project.

The JAM Card allows people with a hidden disability or communication barrier to tell others that they need extra time and understanding in a private and easy way. It was created in 2012 by NOW Group participants with learning disabilities and autism who wanted a discreet way to ask for ‘Just A Minute’ of patience when they need it. It has since grown and developed into a card and app that is used by people with any communication difficulty.
