Ollee for parents

It's not always easy to get children to open up. That’s where Ollee comes in.


Ollee is a digital friend for children aged 8-11, created by Parent Zone and BBC Children in Need.

It helps you have those tricky conversations and to give you and your child extra support when you need it.

It can help your child explore feelings around subjects like school, family, friends and the world – and support conversations about these with you, through connected accounts.
