U-Turn is a structured ten-week automotive training course in car maintenance and body work, delivered in a workshop environment.
U-Turn is a best practice diversionary program for young people aged 15-20 who have been involved in, or who are at risk of becoming involved in, motor vehicle theft. The program targets young vehicle theft offenders, engaging them in ‘hands on’ mechanical training while addressing life-skills and personal development issues. U-turn gives young offenders an opportunity to learn new skills and turn their lives around, thereby helping to reduce the impact of vehicle theft on the Tasmanian community.
U-Turn is delivered by Mission Australia under contract to Tasmania Police, and is funded by the State Government.
Further information is available on the U-Turn website.
