Turn-Over is a specific rugby term. A ‘ Turn-over’ is when a team re-gain possession of the ball and therefore takes control of the game. Project Turn-Over aims to reverse the current situation of participants, allowing them to re-gain control of their future.
Project Turn-Over provides 'at risk' youth with the tools to help take back control on their lives. If you have been excluded from school, or 'at risk' of being excluded, are difficult to manage, are being bullied, have little or no qualifications (NEET), have or at risk of offending (on ROTL). Project TurnOver provides the tools and assistance to help turn your life around.
The TurnOver programme also offers essential enrichment and sporting activities which supports the development of the whole individual through not only improving their mental but also their physical wellbeing. By combining life skills training with playing rugby, boxing, gym and other sports within a team, the programme accredits the values and heart of the rugby community to its success.

'I support and help young people with their various requests and need of assistance. This is often in steering and guiding them towards education or paid work, support with debts, addiction or other problems.'
Rodrigues is one of the participants of Turn-Over. He has a detention history and was for a long time under the assumption that his background would not have a promising future. He now realizes that he will come a long way with the right help and a little confidence.
