Turnaround Centre

This centre is for 14 to 21 year olds living in Croydon who are:

  • involved in crime or antisocial behaviour
  • at risk of getting involved in crime
  • homeless

It's also a place for parents and guardians worried about their children getting caught up in crime. They can get advice and help to avoid their concerns becoming a reality.

The Turnaround Centre is a groundbreaking initiative. It provides a single place for young people and their families to access help and support. Services available include:

  • youth workers
  • the police
  • educational welfare officers
  • voluntary services
  • social workers and health advice
  • leaving care services

The Centre is operated by Croydon Council in partnership with a range of expert agencies. 

The Turnaround Centre is also the central locality hub for early help support.
