About Inclusion

In 2002 Inclusion was created as part of the award winning South Staffordshire and Shropshire NHS Foundation Trust, which became Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) in 2018. Inclusion was created to develop and provide evidence based innovative services to beneficiaries across England. At its inception, Inclusion was created to have the flexibility to provide local solutions to local communities but with the governance and commitment to quality of the NHS.

Inclusion has been successful in its endeavors, since 2002 Inclusion has grown to provide community, residential and prison based services. As of 2018/19 Inclusion employ in excess of 800 staff. We employ a broad spectrum of roles to ensure we meet the needs of those we work with. This includes Doctors, Nurses, Therapists, Psychiatrists Drug and Alcohol Recovery Workers, Peer Mentors and Volunteers. We provide psychological Therapies (IAPT), drug and alcohol services in prisons and the community, prison mental health services and sexual health services. We have a caseload of 63,000 at any one time across the Home Counties, the Midlands, up to West Yorkshire.

Our evolution is one of providing services in prisons to drug and alcohol users, extending this into community settings and Improving Access to Psychological Services. A resounding theme of our services that underpins our success is that of being flexible to changing need, not compromising on quality and understanding our responsibility in achieving the best possible outcomes for service users, families and communities.

Inclusion has extensive experience of working alongside and providing services to Clinical Commissioning Groups, Local Authority Public Health Teams, Police and Crime Commissioners, NOMS, NHS England and a broad range of public and voluntary sector organisations
