The President of Project Turn-Over UK and a Trustee
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.
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
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/
