Include Youth is an independent non-governmental organisation that actively promotes the rights, best interests of and best practice with disadvantaged and vulnerable children and young people.
We undertake activities aimed at influencing public policy and policy awareness in the areas of youth justice and education, employment and training of young people. Include Youth works directly with young people to support them to be engaged with policy decision-making processes and to improve their employability.
The young people we work with and for includes those from socially disadvantaged areas; a care background; with special needs; who have had poor educational experiences; who have committed or are at risk of committing crime; misusing drugs or alcohol; undertaking unsafe sexual behaviour or other harmful activities or of being harmed themselves.
We achieve our objectives through policy advocacy that both informs and is informed by our direct practitioner and young people support services. We also produce resources and provide training, information and support to practitioners and organisations.
Our main offices are based in Belfast, Ards, Armagh, Ballymena, Derry/Londonderry and Omagh.
