Mind yer Time

Mind Yer Time is the World’s first national resource to help children and young people use screens and social media in a healthy way — and it is largely produced by children and young people.

We worked with The Scottish Youth Parliament and The Children’s Parliament on a mandate from The Scottish Government to structure, design and build this resource. We learned from children and young people to ensure our work fits the way they see the world, not just ours.
