Our principles and beliefs
We believe in a world where all children can have their voices heard.
Children are better supported and cared for when they’re listened to. At Mind Of My Own we believe that young people should always be able to participate fully in their lives and it should be easy for them to speak up anytime they want.
We fully believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts whether that is collaborating internally or with external partners.
Digital technology should help us work smarter and we believe that investing in early intervention is key to making human and cost savings further down the line.
We create delightful user centred products that fit into children and young people’s lives,
providing excellent customer service while always keeping the end user in mind.
Mind Of My Own sits at the heart of a strong community of support where practitioners come together to
share and learn in the quest to develop truly child centred communities.
We create accessible apps that provide a unique digital solution to advancing universal children’s rights
Mind Of My Own apps are designed and conscientiously co-produced with young people for young people. We use accessibility by design and include children of all ages and abilities and from all backgrounds in our co-production workshops .
We believe that every child is able to have a say and we build apps to make sure they all have a chance to have their voices heard.
We are committed to improving the life chances of marginalised groups of young people
We do this by offering routes into work through co-production workshops, immersion experiences and employment opportunities. We embrace the fact that children and young people are experts by experience and harness their energy every step of the way through our co-production approach to development.
Change can only happen through meaningful involvement
We believe every child has something to say and we build apps to make sure they all have a chance to have their voices heard. Far beyond traditional surveys our apps are a smart way to receive organic, uncontrived and authentic feedback from a wide range of children and young people using your services.
We help you work smarter to achieve cost savings
You will achieve immediate real tangible savings for every one of your workers in typing up children’s views. Helping children to share risk and resilience factors in their lives with those who need to know allows you to put in support at just the right time for each and every child.
Billions of pounds can be saved through early intervention
By understanding which children are struggling at any given point allows you to intervene at the right time for them. Mind Of My Own data reports can transform your strategic planning at the same time as enabling you to target your constrained resources at an individual level.
Data must inform practice
Children’s own data is the evidence you need to transform practice and build resilient services. Mind Of My Own data reflects the real thoughts of young people collected in real time. Data that can revolutionise your decision making, whether at an individual, service or organisational level.
Walk the walk with us in putting children and young people’s voices first and foremost in your services and join the participation revolution!
