The Jam Card  

Transport for Ireland along with Bus Éireann, Dublin Bus, Go-Ahead Ireland, Iarnród Éireann, TFI Local Link and Luas are continuing our journey to become JAM Card friendly. The Jam Card will assist customers using the public transport system and make their experience as stress-free as possible. 

What 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 and JAM Card© at 

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 

Where can I get one? 

There are several different methods to get a JAM Card. JAM Cards are available for collection from the following transport hubs:Irish Rail Stations: Connolly Station, Pearse Station, Heuston Station, Dublin, Kent Station, Cork,  Ceannt Station, GalwayColbert Station, Limerick, Plunkett Station, Waterford and MacDiarmada Station, Sligo. Dublin Bus: Dublin Bus Head Office, O’Connoll St, Local Link Offices 

You can also request one directly from NOW Group by visiting the JAM Card website and filling out the request form. or if you would prefer there is a JAM Card App available for Android and iOS.

BirdWatch Ireland – Bird Connect Project 

BirdWatch Ireland receive grant funding from the Community Foundation of Ireland for Birds Connect. This is a new social inclusion / biodiversity project. The project’s focus is connecting people and birds through citizen science, outreach and training.They are particularly interested in exploring innovative ways to improve access and participation in bird projects for people with disabilities, new communities and minority groups. 

As part of this project they have produced a laminated bird identification guide to be distributed to Direct Provision Centres and Nursing Homes. The guide has 50 of our most common Irish birds with illustrations and the names translated into Irish, Arabic and French. Birdwatch Ireland will supply physical copies of this guide to Direct Provision Centres and Nursing Homes. 

Birdwatch Ireland are looking at building connections with the residents of these institutions through a bird nest box project and are hoping to work with local men’s sheds and community groups to build and install nest boxes in Direct Provision Centres and Nursing Homes. The majority of the boxes will be tit or robin-style, as these offer the best take-up rates – but there might be scope for other designs if the right location presents itself. Birdwatch Ireland can provide diagrams of suitable nest boxes. 

Any groups interested in the getting involved in this project please contact Andrew by email
