The Just A Minute (JAM) Card is an initiative by the NOW Group, a social enterprise that supports people with learning difficulties and autism. It provides people with communication barriers with a discreet, non-verbal way of asking for a minute of patience when they need it.
Following a comprehensive programme of work, in 2020 the Bank was honored to receive the ‘Business Working Responsibly Mark’ (The Mark) from Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI). The Mark is an external accreditation recognising best in class Responsible Business Programmes in Ireland and as such, the Bank now joins a prestigious group of only 40 other companies who have achieved this accolade.
In July, permanent tsb announced a 3-year partnership with Ó Cualann Cohousing Alliance to support the agency’s work developing fully integrated, co-operative and affordable housing schemes in communities across the country. The Bank will provide €350,000 to Ó Cualann, which will be used to fund the resources required to accelerate its development plans.
