Out track record is evident in the transformations in and around Castle Vale where we began life as Castle Vale Community Regeneration Services.

In 2015 we became Compass Support, the charitable arm of the Pioneer Group. This enables us to offer the best of our expertise to more communities and people across Birmingham and beyond.

We understand people and communities – by consulting with them to understand their needs and responding by providing innovative solutions.

We create independence not dependency – through our coaching approach, enabling people to find their own solutions and gain the confidence and skills to maximise their potential.

We offer a responsive and holistic approach to benefit individuals by working across all age groups, and with interlocking services that place the individual at their core and holistic wrap around support.

We provide quality opportunities and work in partnership with like-minded organisations who want to make a real change – we work with iconic third sector organisations in Birmingham and beyond to create and innovate for the benefit of our communities.

We are outcome and impact led, innovating and sharing – our annual report demonstrates the high quality outcomes we achieve (link), we have a culture of learning and collaboration across the business to co-produce projects and solve challenges.
