Change from Care Opinion

Posted by on

Monkey, who has been helping children to share their feedback on Care Opinion, will be retiring at the beginning of March 2024. We used Monkey’s image with permission, but now Monkey Wellbeing is closing down. You can head to their website to read more about this.

What does this mean for subscribers?

This means Monkey will no longer be on our promotional material or on the Care Opinion website. Please do not print any more Care Opinion material featuring Monkey. If you have existing material with Monkey on we recommend using this before the 4th March 2024. He will then be removed from the website.

If you use material beyond this date, it will still link to Care Opinion. You will just not see Monkey on the website.

Who will replace Monkey?

Well, that is the question! We are currently in conversation with a illustrator to design a Care Opinion Character to replace Monkey on the website and promotional material. We hope this new character will inspire children to tell us about their care in their own words…So watch this space!

If you have any questions or need to discuss further, please contact your support lead at Care Opinion or email

Thank you to Helen (and Monkey!) at Monkey Wellbeing for all the support over the years.
