The Hertfordshire Association for the Care and Rehabilitation of Offenders.

We’ve been working to reduce reoffending for over 50 years and in this time believe we have become rather good at it! All this experience and expertise has allowed us to create our flagship programme – TurnAround.


Our Mission

Our mission is to offer support to offenders, potential offenders and their families to make positive changes to their lives and to reduce the number of victims of crime.


Our Vision

Our vision is a world in which everyone on the wrong side of the law has the chance to turn their lives around and to lead a life that fully contributes to society. We offer that vision through programmes that are delivered with respect and integrity. The build capability and confidence



TurnAround is a personal development programme that provides support, purpose, engagement, structure and opportunity to ex-offenders in their journey back to the community.

You’ll be surprised at the lengths we go to and if you are in any doubt just look at our outcomes.
