Hear from Charlotte, who has benefited from our 218 service.

Charlotte came to Turning Point Scotland’s 218 service through a Direct Bail and planned to stay the full 6 months. During this time she worked on self-worth, managing emotions, anger management, self esteem, mental health and dealing with past trauma.

Charlotte commented that during her time at Turning Point Scotland’s 218 service the staff supported her to ‘find out who she is.’

After leaving the service, and moving into a B&B and then onto supported accommodation, Charlotte accessed the day service programme provided by 218.

She said;

“If it wasn’t for the staff coming to get me some time when I am so down and unmotivated, I wouldn’t leave the house and that’s a scary place for me to go back to mentally.

“The staff put the women first.”
