Who are the presenters of Pod Of My Own? Meet Yvonne and Scarlett in this pilot episode for Pod Of My Own.
This was recorded the week after Mind Of My Own did a rapid (ie in one week) re-brand following the global internet hoax that hijacked our affectionate old nickname ‘MOMO’.
The presenters talk about the unexpected high points of the re-brand, the benefits of team working, opportunities that arise from winning awards, the amazingness of tech4good and inspirational moments.
All this and so much more – tune in now!

Why our customers love us

“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

“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
