Our aim is simple: to support services throughout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to support the reduction of health and social inequalities, improve the health and wellbeing of young people and build resilience. We do this by helping services to understand what young people need and how to put policies and procedures in place to meet those needs.
At the same time we want to ensure that young people aged 13-19 (a period of transition towards greater independence) are given advice and support about their health and know how to access services effectively and with confidence.
Making sure your service is Young Person Friendly can help encourage young people to seek early advice about health and wellbeing issues, including sexual health, skin and musculo-skeletal problems, weights difficulties, bullying, self harm, suicidal feelings, smoking, alcohol and drugs issues by:
- enabling young people to feel at ease
- ensuring young people feel accepted and heard
- creating a welcoming environment
- respecting confidentiality unless there is a safeguarding concern
- involving young people in participation and co-production activities

Why choose to be a Savvy Young Person Friendly Service?
Involvement in Savvy Kernow Quality Standards is entirely voluntary. Savvy Kernow accreditation demonstrates your commitment to the health and wellbeing of young people, and helps you to 'place' young people within your service.
We believe that wellbeing work with young people is about their involvement in service design and delivery, as well as service provision.
By respecting and involving people who use services, and addressing safeguarding, the Savvy Kernow process will add value to your servce. Savvy Kernow promotes continuous improvement and can help you to provide evidence for CQC and, for some services, Ofsted.
