The Compass Disability Network is a Network of disabled people, their carers and organisations that represent disabled people, which works to improve access and inclusion to services and facilities.
Members have an opportunity to give their views on a range of issues that are important to them by attending consultation events, discussion groups and forums or completing questionnaires. Views are fed back to organisations and agencies that develop services such as local authorities and health services.

It’s free to join and members can participate as much or as little as they like. You can participate in meetings and events or just receive our quarterly magazine the Networker to find out what’s going on in the Network. Being part of the Network is a great way to meet other people in a similar situation.

We offer 3 different types of membership. For more information on membership click on the "Become a member" button below.
