Turnaround Centre

From 25 March the Turnaround Centre is closed until further notice. You can still call us for advice and support on 020 8760 5530.

The 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.
