Turning Point is a leading health and social care organisation. We are a social enterprise reinvesting its profits to provide the best services in the right locations for those that need them most across mental health, learning disability, substances misuse and employment. We are committed to delivering services which provide a joined-up approach to people’s complex needs. By focusing on the person rather than the problem we aim to provide connected care, enabling people to transform their lives and help them participate as fully as possible in their community.

Our services are specifically designed to meet the needs and aspirations of the people they serve. Person centred approaches drive our services. This means involving service users in all areas of our business, from producing individual care plans to the design and delivery of services and influencing policy. We work with local commissioners to provide the best solution for their community and work with the communities themselves to ensure that our services are relevant and accessible.

Our Vision

At Turning Point we believe that everybody deserves a healthy and stable life without prejudice. It is often those that need help and support in achieving this foundation for a productive and happy like that receive the least care. Therefore Turning Point works with individuals to provide the support they need to achieve their goals and turn their lives around.

We also aim to influence policy and shape the market to transform the quality and availability of care.
