Turn-up to Turnaround! - The Drop in Zone

Unique to the centre is its Drop in Zone. A place where young people can Just turn up for advice and support in a safe and secure environment. Experienced professionals are on hand to deal with immediate concerns. They will also be able to identify where young people or their families need extra help. The Drop in Zone is for 14-21 year olds living in Croydon.

Parents worried about their children getting caught up in crime or antisocial behaviour will also be able to use the centre.  They can get advice and help to avoid their concerns becoming a reality.

The Turnaround Centre is open:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 10am to 5pm and on Wednesday between 1pm and 5pm.
