Community Compass aims to support people to connect with local services and help them overcome challenges they are facing. These challenges could be things like money worries, unemployment, or isolation.
Project workers get to know each individual and what is important in their lives. Working together, plans are created to help each person reach his or her goals.
The team works in partnership with Craigmillar Medical Group, taking referrals from people experiencing issues that can’t be addressed clinically such as debt, unemployment or isolation.
As well as working closely with individuals, Community Compass also have a number of activities including a cooking group, a gardening group and a Men’s Shed project. These groups provide additional activities for individuals within the Craigmillar community and enable people to come together in a safe, relaxed and friendly environment.
Intended Client Groups:
- People experiencing debt, unemployment or isolation.
This service is open to residents of these areas:

This service accepts direct self referrals.
