        Subject: Compass – spread the word!

Hi
On a very grey and wet morning here in Skipton I’d like to encourage you to
register your organisation on Compass,  and encourage other organisations to
do the same. All sizes and all sectors welcome. 

Compass provides a place for any organisation to easily promote itself and
give key information about the support it provides. 

The spirit of Compass is one of co-operation and collaboration. 96 local
organisations are using Compass as a Social Prescription tool,  with over 200
separate events as well as fact sheets, guides, job opportunities and volunteer roles.

If you know of a local organisation that would benefit from having a presence
on Compass please send them a link to the website https://craven.compassehub.com/

Contact compass@pioneerprojects.org.uk or telephone 015242 62672 for more information.

The more organisations using Compass, the more powerful a tool it will become.
