Media Enquiries

Includem has over 15 years of experience working with the most vulnerable and challenging young people and their families, across some of the most deprived communities in Scotland.

We can provide comment based on this experience in a number of key areas:

  • What works best to keep young people and communities safe
  • Improving the lives of vulnerable, excluded and challenging young people
  • Supporting parents and carers to improve relationships with young people
  • Views on national policies and legislation affecting young people and their families

Please contact our Communications and Policy Manager, Michael Shanks in the first instance via our Head Office on 0141 427 0523 or by email to

  • We can provide anonymised case studies of young people we have supported, the challenges they have faced and the changes they have made in their lives.
  • We can provide high resolution stock imagery of Includem workers and young people

  • We welcome enquiries for general comment but due to the sensitive nature of our work with young people we will not generally give any access to young people for media requests

  • We can supply highly experienced spokespeople on a range of issues and topics
