Compass is an Early Help team, which sits within preventative services.

Compass provides information and advice regarding early help both directly to families, as well as to professionals who are supporting them to achieve meaningful and positive outcomes without the need for statutory intervention.

The purpose of Compass is to navigate to the right help, in the right way at the right time.

Every nursery, preschool, primary and secondary school in South Gloucestershire has a named Compass Partnership Worker who professionals can contact for early help advice and support.

Families can contact the Access and Response Team (ART) for information/advice and support on 01454 866000.
