Compass Disability Services is an innovative, enlightened
and positive organisation. Its mission is:
"To enable and empower disabled people and carers to have independence, choice and control in their lives".
Compass Disability Services is a customer led organisation and our Board of Trustees, who are elected by our customers, is comprised of at least 80% disabled people. We have adopted the Social Model of Disability as a way of working to remove barriers which exclude disabled people from equality of opportunity.
Our Values and Beliefs
• We support equality of opportunity for all people
• We adopt a partnership working approach
• We are a non-campaigning organisation
Compass Disability Services works through consultation, representation and service provision to fulfil our mission. We work in partnership with local government, the Health Service, Social Services, other voluntary sector and charitable organisations and anyone else who can benefit from our knowledge and expertise.

'In Control' are working with the independent living strategy group to run another people’s survey. You might recall last year it resulted in the attached report and key messages document requested by people who were filling in the survey. We are keen to get much greater numbers this year. Please would consider filling in the survey, passing it on to others and/or supporting people to access it. We want this to show a national voice of what’s working for and against people accessing choice, control, independent living and inclusion. Your support to make this happen is very appreciated.
