The JAM Platform: making services accessible to everyone
Clients already love the app, which began life as a plastic card. Now, they’re ready to progress, by developing a digital platform which will show businesses the value of making their services accessible and staff disability-aware.
Access for everyone
At its heart is a UK-wide TripAdvisor-style platform which allows users to give shops, restaurants and services a ‘disability rating’ through the JAM app. Users can share the places that offer excellent customer service to people with learning disabilities and highlight the issues that they face every day.
NOW Group will also launch its own training and awareness programme, to help businesses achieve higher ratings. Retailers and service providers are already getting behind the scheme, including Northern Ireland’s public transport company Translink. By taking the idea further the NOW Group plan to create an invaluable interactive resource that makes services more accessible.
NOW Group has been approved for funding from Nominet Trust. Funding is subject to successfully completing our project initiation process.
