Our ambition is to continue to innovate, grow and provide the dedicated support that is needed by so many; to deliver our mission and realise our vision.

Since then, includem has grown and developed to offer a wide range of services and projects to children, young people and families across Scotland. We have expanded our offering of specialist support to not just young people in conflict with the law, but to families as well. We work with children and young people in care, and their caregivers, as well as supporting those facing challenges with education or transitioning to adulthood. Regardless of who we are supporting, our commitment to relationship-based, 24/7 support, remains unchanged.


Our mission is to provide the support young people need to make positive changes in their lives, and inspire a more hopeful future for young people, their families and communities.


A world where every young person is respected, valued, and has the opportunity to actively participate in all aspects of life and society.
