Who is Compass Everyday for?

Compass Everyday is aimed at those who have been assessed by the Local Authority or CCG and are recognised as requiring support with everyday living.

Most people with profound and multiple learning disabilities can be supported. Our fully accessible facilities include full changing facilities, soft floor area, sensory room, common room and kitchen.

Our experienced and enthusiastic team will work with families to understand and fulfil individuals care and support needs by creating an individual care/support plan.

Those with low to moderate needs may find Compass Everyday particularly appealing as we can concentrate on the individuals agreed development outcomes to move towards greater independence and greater control over their life.

We will work with you and other professionals (social workers, speech and language, occupational therapists etc.) to create a plan tailored to the individuals’ needs and aspirations, designed to achieve what is necessary to live the life they wish to. This could be a great way forward for those transitioning from education to an adult care package

How is Compass Everyday Funded?

Depending on assessed needs and funded support plans, most options can be funded through health and/or social care funding.

With your consent we can also work with your social worker to find the best funding options for you.
