Councils are increasingly searching for better solutions for vulnerable and challenging young people.
While this is often driven by financial cost, there’s also a cost faced by the young person themselves – as well as by our society.
Includem offers real alternatives to remand and prosecution – as well as to the unnecessary use of secure care and prison.
We have a strong track record of delivering direct alternatives to custody. Because we’re able to safely maintain challenging young people within their families and community placements, we can help councils make significant savings through reduced need for residential care.
For more information, see our leaflet on helping young people remain part of society.
