Compass Collective are a small theatre company that helps refugees and young asylum-seekers integrate healthily into UK society using art-led professional development programmes. Compass Collective have partnered with the British Red Cross and Amnesty International and arts organisations such as Shakespeare?s Globe to help people develop transferrable skills such as confidence, communication, leadership and improved English. The organisation is using funding from The Fore to develop a ‘Next Steps’ professional development programme for young asylum-seekers over the age of 18 who cannot access education without paying international fees. This will provide the young people with one-to-one pathway plans, careers advice and application support.
