We are proud to announce that Mind Of My Own was one of 23 winners at the CYP Now Award 2017, in an evening of celebration for the children’s sector.
Chosen by a panel of professionals and young people, Express was the winner of the ‘Children in Care Award’. This category was for an organisation “that has done the most to improve outcomes for looked-after children, whether in residential care, foster care or other types of placement” (CYP Now 2017).
Express was released in January 2017. It is designed to gather the authentic views of younger children and those with learning disabilities. If you’re new to Express (or OneApp), you can find out more here.
In our last blog post on the subject we took a looked at our fellow finalists. The competition was very strong and on the evening we were surprised, but delighted, to end up as winners.
The Children & Young People Now Awards have become the gold standard for our sector and we are honoured to have been recognised. This will be the fourth year in succession that Mind of My Own apps have been recognised by Children & Young People Now – winning in 2014 and Highly Commended in 2015 and 2016.
A special thank you everyone who has supported us over the years. Without your support Mind Of My Own would not reach the young people who need it. All of you have helped us to be recognised through this award.
