Who we are


Our Story

Compass Community Care is a registered charity organisation dedicated to the care and support of people in our community. We began informal community activities in 2007 and today our programs help the sick, elderly, unemployed, our youth and those in need so they can live a more hopeful and empowered life. At Compass Community Care, we build human connections and demonstrate compassion through a range of programs that Connect, Serve and Build. We believe in the value of every individual and the positive change that is born from a supportive community.

Our Purpose

We are dedicated to:
  • Alleviating poverty, sickness, destitution, suffering, distress, misfortune, disability or helplessness in our local community.
  • Providing counsel, financial aid and emotional support to needy people, as appropriate.
  • Engaging in social justice and human rights issues locally and the wider community as appropriate.

OUR MISSION

To serve the marginalised, less fortunate, socially isolated people in our community 

by providing food for Their Bodies, Kindness for Their Souls &

Uplifting of their Spirit

Our aim is more than provide a hot meal, but also to CONNECT with the community and the people within, SERVE and care for people’s needs and to BUILD people up.

Through our regular contact with our patrons, we can support them through building positive relationships, offering friendship, a listening ear, and referrals to other community programs.

With the support of our contributors, we are able to provide our patrons with varying produce, bread and other types of groceries each week.

We Believe That:

  • Everyone who comes through our door is welcome at our table, regardless of their circumstance
  • Everyone should be treated with care, dignity, respect, and each one is our guest
  • While feeding our guests a meal is our primary objective, gentle conversations and company are equally important
  • Our volunteers and contributors/supporters are essential to our success
  • We strive to ensure every volunteer and guest has a positive and safe encounter with ‘compass canteen’
