“Turnaround has helped me look at my life and I now know what to do to keep myself in recovery such as NA, CA, AS. I know I can’t do it on my own as I’ve tried many times and kept failing in the past, so I’m ready to put 101% into my recovery this time.”

Turnaround provides a unique criminal justice service to young men and women aged 18 and over whose offending is persistent, high volume, low tariff and who are failing in other community based alternatives.

Priority is given to those individuals who may be vulnerable due to substance misuse, mental health issues, homelessnes or lack of coping skills.

We support the recovery approach and believe that people can and do recover from the difficulties associated with offending.

The residential unit is for men only for 6-8 weeks approximately and is based in the Glenifer Braes just outside Paisley.

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

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.
