Mind Of My Own is an app which children and young people can use to help express their views, wishes and feelings.
Mind Of My Own can help you be more actively involved. It is an accessible and empowering way to tell your workers about things that are important to you.
There are 2 versions of the app: the One App and the Express App.
The One App helps you communicate your views, wishes and feelings with workers.
You can download the One App and access it independently. To do this, you will need to have your own email address and a device with internet access.
The Express App is ideal for younger children and those with additional needs. It is designed specifically to help those children who may otherwise struggle to communicate their views.
The Express App can only be accessed through a worker account and it is designed to be used by the child alongside a worker.
The Mind Of My Own app has different sections you can complete depending on what views you would like to share.
When you have completed a section, you will have the choice of which worker you would like to share your views with. This worker will receive a copy of your views which can be added to your case files. This means your views will always be recorded in your own words.
For more information about Mind of My Own, speak to a worker who is supporting you. This could be a Social Worker, Independent Reviewing Officer, Pathway Worker or advocate.
