Joeri Peperkamp

We started the UK programme in October 2019 and have completed a successful pilot with prisoners from Feltham Young Offenders Institute along with an additional 2 Cohorts before Covid-19 struck. We have already had some incredible success with two of the young men from our first Cohort who upon release became Turn-Over Ambassador Legends – MJ is a full time mentor and JoJo is at university studying sport. Both support the charity in a variety of ways and we are very proud of their achievements to date.

Our ethos is that, Once part of the Turn-Over family, you are always part of the family and we support you as and when you need. In Holland, Diedrik was on the programme following a long prison sentence over 8 years ago and he has been working full time with Project Turn-Over in Holland for 3 years now. Diedrik flew over to the UK to meet our Cohort 1 participants in 2019.
Prevention

Turn-Over UK has starting a ‘prevention’ programme with young men aged 13-17 who have been excluded from school, at risk of being excluded, on the police radar and at risk of following a wrong path which may not give them the best outcome in life. Our courses are based at Staines RFC, Feltham.
Our Turn-Over programme is funded by Virtual Clarity

CALMS

We started our CALMS (Community Action Lead Mentoring and Sport) in December 2020 with over 11 young boys and girls attending. This is a collaboration programme with No Shame in Running, Garvin Snell and includes Boxing, fitness, mental wellbeing, mentoring, violence reduction/grooming/knife crime workshops. Hosted at Hanworth Youth Centre and supported by The Backstreet Dojo, Sensei Tony Newman https://backstreet-dojo.business.site/
