U-Turn Women’s Project is women working with vulnerable women including sex workers by providing opportunities and to assist them in making self-determining changes to improve the quality of their lives

U-Turn is a women's only service that enables women to take control of their own lives. At the centre, they are free to say and do what they wish without fear.

U-Turn focuses on encouraging users to develop their own survival skills - the very skills that had kept them alive on the streets. Each woman is allocated a key worker who supports her, however women have ownership of the centre. They can have a shower and use the kitchen but must clean up after themselves; they are welcome to receive assistance from their key worker to call about their benefits but they often do it for themselves and even assist other service users with their issues.
