Walkinstown Green Social Enterprises has demonstrated their commitment to people with communication difficulties by taking part in training that will ensure their staff are equipped to provide excellent customer service to people with learning difficulties and communication barriers.
Joe Mason CEO of parent company WALK stated ‘I am is delighted that our social enterprise has become the first organisation in the Republic of Ireland to become a JAM Card friendly organisation’
The JAM Card, which stands for Just A Minute, is a social innovation from NOW Group an organisation that supports people with learning difficulties and autism into employment. It was their service users who said they would like a discreet way of telling people that sometimes they need a little extra time and patience. The JAM Card was created first as a credit card sized card and has recently been developed into an app for smartphones.
