Ollee is a digital friend for children aged 8-11 – created by Parent Zone and funded by BBC Children in Need’s A Million & Me initiative.
It helps them explore feelings around school, family, friends and the world – and share advice with a parent or trusted adult.
Children can tell Ollee how they’re feeling and it will give them ideas about what to do. If they’re not sure, Ollee will help them figure it out.
Together, parents and children can share Ollee’s advice and talk about feelings together through connected accounts.

The peer support group is a safe space for those parents and carers who are supporting a child or young person struggling with emotional or mental health to be heard, supported and to share stories with others. Please see the flyer for more information:
As you all know this last year has been one of the most challenging for our children and the impact on their mental wellbeing has been significant. Kalmer have developed a free digital magazine DOSE which has resources and articles aimed at informing about the importance and significance of addressing our mental wellbeing in ways which can be creative and fun.
DOSE have created a free summer holiday pack filled with activities to boost those happy hormones and allow children to take control over their mental wellbeing. Head over to the website below to download the summer pack and browse other resources.
Everything is free so take what you need, share because you care and together lets have a happier school holiday.
