JAM card

We are proud to support the JAM initiative.

This initiative, from NOW Group, allows people with a learning difficulty, autism or Asperger’s to tell us that they need ‘Just A Minute’ discreetly and easily.

Those with a communication barrier are often reluctant or unable to tell others about their condition. The JAM Card and app allow this to happen in a simple, effective non-verbal manner.

You can use the JAM card at our ticket desk, in the Zoovenir Shop, at the visitor photography base camp, on our zoo-mobile, in our catering facilities, at the animal feeding times and keeper talks talks or with any member of staff that you encounter!

Our team are trained to assist and support the JAM initiative and can help you to enjoy the zoo safely and independently.
