Developed with the Cornwall YZUP team, these tools were specifically designed to increase young people's engagement in services.

This offers young people with fairly normative patterns of substance use up to three sessions and have shown very positive outcomes. Quarto is a young person friendly comprehensive assessment for those with more complex needs. These tools are now being used in over 10 counties in the UK.
