Devon wins Mind Of My Own award

Devon has been named as Mind Of My Own’s most improved organisation.

Devon Children’s Services have been using Mind Of My Own for a number of years to better understand children’s views, wishes and feelings. The app enables young people to communicate with social workers, IROs and other support workers at a time that suits them. And during the last quarter of 2021, usage of the app in Devon increased by over 400%, compared with the previous quarter. It’s a great achievement and shows how highly Devon values the voice of the child.

Chief Officer for Children’s Services, Melissa Caslake said:

“Listening to the voice of the child is a priority for everyone within Devon’s Children’s Services. This is a great start to 2022, providing children and young people with a direct way to express their voice in a way that they can engage with and relate to.”

A big well done to everyone who helped make this happen.

If you have a Devon social worker or PA, Mind Of My Own lets you communicate with your support workers at a time that suits you! You can sign up to the app here. And make sure that you sign up with your full name so that the app sends your messages to the right person!
