Compass Children's Charity (1073903) - Our Vision : A world where children are free, safe and can realise their potential. Our mission : To develop collaborative partnerships that promote a positive and measurable impact on the lives of at-risk children and adolescents through programmes and rights-based advocacy. Our Tribe values Transparency - honesty and open communication with our beneficiaries, supporters and at all times. Rights-based – we call duty bearers to account to address the root and structural causes of poverty, inequality and injustice rather than just the symptoms. Innovative – we recognise there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. Innovation ensures we effectively engage with children. Beneficiary Focused – The best interests of beneficiaries will always come first and their protection is paramount above other priorities. Enabling - Our support must allow children to grow and reach their potential, nurturing their talents in an enabling environment.
