Community Compass – Two years of work in Craigmillar

Community Compass reaches 2 year milestone

Compass 1

Community Compass has been working in Craigmillar for two years and has taken over 300 referrals from local GPs, housing staff and from Third Sector and Community Groups.

The Community Compass team, who also take self-referrals, link local people in with groups and services which can help improve their health and wellbeing. For example we support people to get support around issues causing them anxiety and stress such as benefits, debt and housing.

For others who are isolated, we help them find activities they are interested in or which gets them out and meeting new people. If people are interested in something that isn’t happening locally, we can also help set up groups, such as a cycling group and a women’s Zumba session.

If people don’t feel confident about attending an appointment or group, our worker can take them there until they feel happy going on their own.

If you’d like to know more, call Jenny Gray, Project Leader on 07920 267 502 or come along to our drop-in which we run with the Thistle Foundation at the library on Fridays, 11am – 1pm.
