Our Community

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 services.

We have spoken to numbers of different organisations throughout the world and have now internationalised the code base so that translation into any language is straightforward, making our apps more accessible to all children.

We are always looking to update and develop our apps. Our great customers help us to continually improve by providing feedback and taking part in co-production workshops.

Customers

We work with over 75 organisations across the world ranging from local authorities, voluntary organisations, independent fostering and residential providers, schools and police forces.

What our customers think

“The level of take up has been much greater and faster than I thought it would be. That’s testament to the quality of preparation, input from our teams and the Mind Of My Own team, and the quality of the product itself”

Martin Gray, Director, Stockton-on-Tees Children’s Services

 

“Social workers have found interventions more productive, as they have been able to gather increased direct information from young people that previously they would have been unable to ascertain”

Tim Aldridge, Director, Havering Children’s Services

 

“Mind Of My Own has been an invaluable tool in helping young people share crucial information about themselves through simple, incisive questions, helping them build stable relationships with their carers as well as share any problems they may have in order to have these resolved in the first possible instance.””

John Egan, National Director, Action for Children

 

“Using specific age appropriate, child centred language and pictures enables children to express themselves as they wish to. The speed of communication means that we can hear from children quickly and respond to emergencies.”

Natalie Trentham, Head of Quality Assurance and Practice Improvement, West Sussex

 

“In order to prioritise young people’s voices the recently introduced One app was successfully helping looked after children structure their thoughts and tell services what they want, whenever it suited them best.”

Perth & Kinross, Care Inspectorate Report

 

“Services to promote children’s participation are accessible, through… the Mind Of My Own apps… The young people really appreciate this in preference to the written documents that they used to complete.”

Ofsted: Gateshead Children’s Services Inspection Report

 

 

“Mind Of My Own has revolutionised our engagement with young people in care. Since we signed up to The Service Portal its increased participation in children in care reviews from 54% to 99%”

David Hamilton, Senior Social Worker, SE Trust, Northern Ireland
