Mind of My Own
Does anyone listen - really listen - to you? Mind of My Own is a great way to tell your Independent Reviewing Officer (IRO) what you like, how you feel and what you need
You can download the Mind of My Own One App onto your phone, Playstation, Xbox or tablet. If you need help please ask your foster carer or social worker.
“I finally found a way to feel confident and tell someone what was happening to me. I got help”
“I find speaking in this way much easier. It’s revolutionary. :D”
Listen to what some young people in Wakefield think about Mind of My Own
Go to one.mindofmyown.org.uk and either sign up to a new account or log in to your existing account. You can also download the app from either the Apple App Store or the Google Play store.
Choose one of these options (My worker is visiting, Share good news, Prepare for a meeting etc.)
Answer as many of the questions as you like and add more information where you want to.
Now you have created a statement to send to a professional you trust and you will get a drop down menu with options to send it to your social worker, your social worker's manager etc. If the person you would like to send it to is not in the list you can input their email yourself and send it to them that way.
If you want, we can notify you when the person you sent your statement to has received it. Simply input your phone number and we'll give you a text when your statement has been picked up.
Once signed-up go to "Get ready for a meeting" and click the emojis that are right for you. Once you have had your say send your statement to your Social Worker or IRO
