Everything you need to know about ONE App
How it works?
Young person signs up for an account and selects the organisation they are part of.
They choose a topic that is important in that moment.
They are guided through structured prompts.
Once the young person has said all they want to, they can send the information to their choice of practitioner.
This information is received at the organisation’s Mind Of My Own admin portal where it is sent to the correct practitioner and a copy stored in the data set.
Each practitioner has their own account where they can see what young people have sent to them.
The practitioner responds to the young person and stores the information on the organisation’s record system.

Supporting better outcomes for the child
Imagine knowing which children are unsafe or unhappy where they live, which is often the same thing. You can when you help them to constantly share their authentic views, thoughts and feelings with you.
Empowerment through Digital Inclusion
Digital inclusion is about ensuring the benefits of the internet and digital technologies are available to everyone. It is a layer of social inequality often defined in terms of lack of digital skills, connectivity and accessibility.
