“If I hadn’t had Includem I probably would have just ended up in secure [care]”

“Includem listen to me which means there is no need for me to offend”

“I get on with my family, it changed ’cos I looked at what I’d done to them and started to treat them differently”

“They were there for me when I needed them the most”

“They helped me achieve things I didn’t think I could do. Includem have showed me who I am”

Making a difference. 24/7.

At Includem we work with society's most troubled and vulnerable young people. We’re there to help when young people are most at risk.

24 hours a day. Every single day of the year.

For some young people, life is a series of problems. They often feel completely alone, and can’t see any future at all. At Includem, we stick with each young person. We help them realise they can change their circumstances, and help them build a better life.

Includem, which is a charity, is built on five principles at the heart of everything we do. We’ve been working with young people in this way for 12 years now, and we have solid evidence to prove that our approach works. We believe the benefits are clear, not just for young people but for everyone in Scotland.
