About us


Community Compass offer creative new ways for older people to stay social, get active and have fun.

Our aim is to improve the lives of older people in Cheshire through a social enterprise that helps communities to deliver sustainable, creative and active social groups or ‘Compass Clubs’.

We have both worked with older people for years – we met working at Age UK Cheshire on their Casserole Club and Wear Purple projects. Loneliness is a huge problem in Cheshire West, and we saw a need for something that could help communities to build their own support networks to prevent loneliness on a local level.

We host a range of weekly Compass Club activities including creative writing, poetry, jigsaws, music groups, card crafts, knitting, badminton, bunting making, singing and jamming. The clubs always, always involve a cup of tea, a friendly chat and Yvonne’s amazing home baked cakes!

Our ‘Share Clubs’ match lonely older people with a local volunteer who wants to give their time to help their community. That may be through a weekly visit and delivery of free FareShare groceries, dropping round with a healthy home cooked meal or through a regular phone call.

By signing up to the Share Club, members are also invited to a monthly day out where they can make or meet new friends, participate in a range of activities, enjoy a hot home-cooked lunch and go home with a packed tea and some fresh groceries. Free transport is also available on request.
