Turnaround is a service for men involved in the Criminal Justice system.  We offer flexible, person-centred residential and community based support across south-west Scotland and north Strathclyde to enable our service users to understand and confront their behaviour by introducing alternatives to drugs, alcohol and offending.

Our Turnaround Residential service for men is based in Renfrewshire, however we can accept referrals from the 10 local authorities we cover. At the Residential unit we focus on men with addiction issues who are failing in community-based alternatives. Priority is given to those who are particularly vulnerable due to substance misuse, mental health issues, homelessness, or lack of coping/social skills etc. The Turnaround Community service supports men across the same 10 local authorities and is co-located within Criminal Justice Social Work offices. We offer one-to-one support and group work to individuals on a Community Payback Order to reflect and address their drug and alcohol misuse issues and associated offending behaviour.

Turnaround Community services are for both men and women to receive support locally in the following areas:

  • Argyll and Bute
  • East Dunbartonshire
  • East Renfrewshire
  • Inverclyde
  • Renfrewshire
  • West Dunbartonshire
  • Dumfries & Galloway
  • East Ayrshire
  • North Ayrshire
  • South Ayrshire

Who is Turnaround for?

Turnaround is not suitable for serious, sexual or violent offenders but aims to provide support to young prolific offenders, helping them find stability and move forward supported by our team and guided by their care manager.


Turnaround residential can be accessed via bail from the court or as a residential requirement of a CPO.

A referral can also be made when a service user has relapsed or is non-compliant and this can be an option prior to breach proceedings being instituted.

Turnaround will take referrals from the NHS and from statutory and voluntary agencies as long as the service user has a criminal justice connection.

  • To make a referral call 01505 810800.
