Compass is a member led organisation and we strive to be an open, transparent and democratic organisation

Our Constitution

Our Constitution is the binding agreement within Compass that sets out the framework for how we are governed and enables the members to hold Compass staff and the Management Committee to account.

Our Governance structure

As of April 2019, Compass is governed by an executive Board and an advisory Council (which is currently being established). Our AGM votes to confirm members of the Board and several Compass members are on its Council.

The Board meets 5-6 times per year; the Council meets twice every year.

A summary of the most recent Board meeting can be found here.

Compass AGM

At the Compass AGM, members vote on the strategic direction of the organisation, its governance and finance, and other important matters for the impact and the future of our work. All decisions are made on a one-member-one-vote basis. Those unable to attend the AGM in person are able to vote on proposals by correspondence, ahead of the event.
