This paper builds on debates about the meaning and definition of social exclusion through an empirical analysis undertaken as part of a four-year evaluation study of a Scottish demonstration project on young peoples' sexual health. It examines how interventions to improve sexual well-being might be construed as a way of promoting social inclusion, and then explores to what extent the organisation of bureaucratic relations in an intervention characterised by "joined-up" working helped or impeded social inclusion.
