Includem was established in 2000 and since then has experienced a period of rapid growth. We are committed to our key founding principles to challenge offending behaviour, support young people and develop hope for the future through one to one relationships. Our ethos and service approach is continually tested and proven for effectiveness, whilst we continue to seek innovative practice. We work in partnership with local authorities to focus on: * the highest risk young people with the most complex and challenging needs and behaviours including offending, welfare and health needs. * young people who are characterised by a chaotic lifestyle and/or mistrust of services which make them difficult to engage with and for whom our flexible and responsive service approach is effective. * those who have often exhausted and/or screened out by other services. Our services are available at the times, and in the places, where immediate support is needed; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
