Compass Disability Services aim to enable and empower disabled people and carers to have independence, choice and control in their lives. Members have an opportunity to give their views on issues by attending consultation events, discussion groups and forums. Views are fed back to organisations and agencies that develop services such as local authorities and health services.
It’s free to join and members can participate as much or as little as they like.
Whether you have MS, or care about someone who does, join our group to connect with other people from the community and share experiences. We don’t want anyone to face MS alone. From information on local services to opportunities to meet others in the area and more, our group is part of a large network of MS Society groups across the UK. We hope to meet you soon!
