Local Groups

Compass Local Groups are a big way of empowering our membership to take our ideas and campaigns into their communities, and in turn they shape our national programme. 

They create a forum and a platform for progressives in your area to connect, talk, and organise and they’re one of the best ways to get more involved with Compass in a practical way.

Can’t see a Local Group near you? Why not start one!

First, read our guide to Local Groups. Then, when you’re ready, get in touch to tell us a bit about you.

All Compass local group members come together to connect via CompassUK Slack – the online collaboration tool where we’re creating a supportive community across the country to share information, stories, experiences and capability. To join to the slack channel and your local group channel, become a member.

If you have any questions in the meantime, reach out to us at info@compassonline.org.uk.
