What is 218? We believe that there are more effective ways to reduce reoffending than short term prison sentences.

Turning Point Scotland 218 provides an alternative to custody for women in the justice system.

We provide programmes of intensive support and group work to empower the women to address the root causes of their offending.  

With a view to support them to break the cycle of offending which results in the ‘revolving door’ syndrome of maintaining their involvement in the criminal justice system and prison service.
