BBC Own It app

BBC 'Own It' app

The Own it app is part of the BBC’s commitment to supporting young people in today’s changing digital environment. It will provide a helping hand to your child when they receive their first smartphone, supporting their digital wellbeing, showing them how to make smarter and better informed choices and helping them grow into confident, positive and happy digital citizens.

Using a combination of self-reporting and ‘machine learning’, the app builds up a picture of your child’s digital wellbeing and serves relevant content, information and interventions designed to help your child understand the impact that their online behaviours can have on themselves, and on others.

In addition, the app presents a range of content and features designed to help your child get the most of their time online, and help them to develop healthy online habits and behaviours, and encourages your child to have conversations with you when they are feeling sad or worried.

Barnardo's-See, Hear, Respond

See Hear Respond is a service provided across England by Barnardo’s and other national and local community-based organisations in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The programme has been created to help children and young people in England who are experiencing harm and increased adversity during this period by providing support to those who are not being seen by social care or other key agencies.

Working with its partners, Barnardo’s aims to reduce the likelihood of harm and ensure other support and protective networks are in place using: • online digital support, including advice and information, online counselling and a telephone helpline • face to face interventions, such as support for groups at risk outside the home and one to one support • reintegration into education, including assessments and the delivery of support pathways back to education

See Hear Respond accept referrals from any source either through the Freephone number 0800 151 7015 and via the online referral hub. https://www.barnardos.org.uk/see-hear-respond
