We hope you had a happy New Year and are ready for 2017!

There’s some exciting changes to Mind Of My Own products and the website. Things look a little different but the changes are designed to make Mind Of My Own apps easier for you to use and get help with.

The original Mind Of My Own app is now ‘OneApp’

You probably already know this but just in case, the original Mind Of My Own app is now called OneApp.

Worker Accounts are now ‘Mind Of My Own for Workers’

If you work for an organisation that has joined Mind Of My Own you can now sign up and log into your own Mind Of My Own for Workers account at workers.mindofmyown.org.uk. This will give you access to OneApp and Express (if applicable)  to use with your children and young people.

Bookmark workers.mindofmyown.org.uk on your computer and on your tablet or phone (add it to the home screen).

If you try to log in to your worker account through OneApp it will guide you to Mind Of My Own for Workers.

When you’re logged in to Mind Of My Own for Workers you will be given the option to create profiles for children you work with who may not be able or want to have their own OneApp account. When you see that child you can use their profile to start a co-use session of OneApp or Express.

In summary: 
– access your worker account through Mind Of My Own for Workers in your browser at workers.mindofmyown.org.uk
– it gives you access to using One and Express (if applicable)
– children and young people can still access their OneApp young people accounts on the android, iOS or web apps.

Talking about Express...

Express is live

Our new app for young people with a learning disability and younger children is live. For now, its a web app only which means you use it in your web browser.

Twelve local authorities have already signed up and eight of them are now live on Express:
– Havering
– Southern Trust
– Buckinghamshire
– Torbay
– Devon
– Sunderland
– Wolverhampton
– Bournemouth

If you’re in one of these areas then use Express to gather the views of any of your younger children or those with learning disabilities. Download your free guide to using Express here.

You can access Express through your Mind Of My Own for Workers account.
