Mind Of My Own has partnered with , a not-for-profit subsidiary of . Child Wise empowers organisations to honestly say “we have done everything we possibly can to make sure that children are safe from abuse and harm– and children’s views and voices are listened to seriously in our business”. Child Wise works all over Australia and the world, to empower organisations with everything possible to prevent children ever being abused or harmed
For 30 years, Child Wise has worked across multiple industry sectors to build child safeguarding capacity and embed a culture where child safety is front of mind. The Child Wise approach to child safeguarding is child-centred: they make sure that children are empowered and that their voices are heard in the work that they do.
Mind Of My Own provides the vital technology to hear what children have to say about their safety (and more) in your organisation, while Child Wise can build the vital safeguarding infrastructure you need to respond. Child Wise can help ensure that your organisation is not only compliant with legislation, but that you have a framework of policies, procedures and strategies which provide a foundation for building a genuinely child safe culture with the voices of children and young people at the very centre.
Child Wise and Mind Of My Own can work with you to facilitate the engagement of children and young people, create opportunities for them to participate in your organisation, and develop age-appropriate mechanisms for providing feedback.
Through our partnership we don’t just provide the digital participation tools that will enable you to engage and consult with children and young people in your organisation in a way that’s efficient and responsive to your organisational needs; we also provide tailored support to help your organisation implement these tools as part of an integrated child safeguarding framework.

I have never seen a child consultation tool quite like Mind Of My Own in Australia.
In my opinion, it is absolutely indispensable to any organisation who advocates child rights and it is a key way to amplify children’s voices. I don’t think any out of home care organisation should be without it.
