MeeToo

The MeeToo app gives young people the tools to help themselves, and each other. It’s designed to facilitate peer support which enables young people who share similar life experiences to provide each other with reciprocal support, advice, empathy and a sense of belonging. MeeToo is confidential and anonymous which gives young people the confidence to talk about whatever is worrying them. The app is safe because all posts and replies are checked by human moderators before they go live, and in-house counsellors provide extra support if needed. The in-app directory is packed with useful resources, enabling students to connect directly to our school support services and those available in the local area.
MeeToo encourages you to ask your child if they know about the app and to add their school portal so they can get help when they need it. MeeToo is featured on the NHS Apps Library and can be downloaded from googleplay and apple app store. For more information about the app, their approach, how they keep children safe and any other questions you may have please visit https://www.meetoo.help/safeguarding.
