Cornwall Pride 2016
Date: 27 Aug 2016
Savvy Kernow joined the Health Promotion Service, Healthy Gay Cornwall team and hundreds of LGBTQ people and their families and friends at #PrideCornwall 2016. We joined the Pride March through Truro accompanying the enormous rainbow flag and then joined the Party in the Park.
During the day we met and spoke to lots of Young People and gave away Savvy Kernow wristbands and information. We also talked to a number of Services about being Savvy and making sure they were a truly Young Person Friendly service.
Join us / Help us
One of the things we really want to do is get young people voices at the heart of Savvy and have young people help be at the heart of decision making and the development of Savvy.
If you were one of the young people we spoke to today, get in touch and tell us what you think we should be telling services about your needs. We want your ideas about how we work with young people to help services have a better knowledge about the lives of young people and the sorts of things you want them to help you with.
Send us an e mail, write an article to go on the site or ask us to come and hear views from a group you are involved in.
Savvy Young People Group
We want to set up a Savvy Young People's Group who will help us plan the future of Savvy; educate and inform services; help Savvy Kernow work with other young people information and support websites to create one trusted point of contact for advice and signposting.
The Savvy Young People's Group will have a real say in what Savvy does and will help us quality assure Services who want to be recognised as Young Person Friendly.
If you would like to know more about the getting involved or to register your interest (you have to be a YP aged 13-19 living in Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly) send us an e mail.
