The trustees all give freely their time and expertise without any form of remuneration or other benefit in cash
or kind (2016: £nil). Expenses paid to the trustees in the year totalled £153 (2016: £91). These expenses related
to two trustees reimbursed for their travel expenses. (2016: 2). Trustees are entitled to expenses, the other
Trustees waive this right, and it is not practical to value this, but is not significant.

During the year, no trustee had any personal interest in any contract or transaction entered into by the
charity (2016: nil).

Total Staff Cost and Employee Benefits 2,854,426 2,653,590

The salary costs have gone up reflecting the expansion to meet new service contracts, with additional posts
in relation to team managers and head office to manage the growth, ahead of the impact on the growth in
revenue. In addition, use of sessional staff hours increased to cover the recruitment of permanent workers
and employee turnover. We have also moved away from part time workers to full time, which provides
greater flexibility in deployment of staff to cover our 24/7 service.

Five key managers were paid salaries totalling £261,172. (2016: Four managers, £241,823)

The average monthly number of employees by headcount during the year was as follows:

The aim and use of the designated fund is broken down as follows:
a. Following a restructuring of staff terms and conditions initiated by staff, a number of staff lost out, it was agreed by
the trustees to compensate the few staff members impacted on a reducing basis over the course of 3 years to
mitigate the impact. Due to leavers the full fund has not been required.
b. The Trustees have put aside monies for the ongoing evaluation of our voluntary services, originally this had been
high but reassessment of the requirements has significantly reduced the requirement
c. The trustees are supporting The Lens Project to enable staff to develop innovative ideas and improvements to
d. Where we can, the Trustees have enabled the Secondment of Includem staff to both provide expertise to others but
also enable its own staff to learn and develop by exposure to other charities and their operational practices.
e. The trustees have agreed to support the ongoing provision of the Transitions and Impact services, which depend on
voluntary support and act as the investor to make up any shortfall in funding necessary to maintain the service at
current levels
f. The trustees approved a growth strategy in November 2015, which requires ongoing capacity of our fundraising
g. As part of the strategy, the trust is expanding new service delivery models, endeavouring to stay innovative. The
service development is in 3 areas:
I. Innovative High Cost Placement Pricing Structure,
II. Schools services start up and investment costs,
III. Additional staff to focus on new opportunities prior to full operational availability

The aim and use for each restricted fund is as follows:

a) The Trust has grouped its services, based on young people volunteering for help, and not funded
by Local Authority commissioning into a new grouping called voluntary services, this now includes
our transitions and impact services, and intends to develop a related health based service.

b) The Attainment Services groups all our school services together and provides a service linking the
schools to the home circumstances of the young people, with Includem providing support within the

c) Service Development aims to support business development processes and improve Includem's
quality procedures as highlighted the achievement of CIPFA's Mark of Excellence in Governance, and
creation of the Head of Strategy and Innovation to enable Includem to secure a stronger funding
base and help embed new ideas and innovations for service delivery

d) The Young Person’s Funds are small, non-service related funds which channel support directly to
young people to provide them with better living standards, whether that is essential equipment or the
opportunity to spend time away from their normal environment

e) The Core Service is our main service to young people; however, one contract is structured in the
format of grant funding rather than service commissioning.
