Thousands of care leavers and young people in care find the transition between leaving care and accessing adult services lonely and isolating.
A lack of specialist services and inadequate adult expertise in engaging with young adults undermines their ability to receive positive experiences and go on to lead fulfilling lives. As a result, a free, secure app, MOMO (Mind Of My Own), is now available for young people to download, to help them take control of their lives and improve the support they receive.
Anyone who works with care leavers, children in need or looked after children can also subscribe to Service MOMO - which includes a contact and referral pathway tool. Professionals can also register for free advice on how to use it. For more information, visit www.mindofmyown.org.uk
