Our GRACE Anti-Racism group has been working hard behind the scenes to make important changes to the way we do things in Compass. Garfield has now become the Lead Ambassador for the group, so we have appointed a new Residential Lead Ambassador.
“My name is Michaela and I am currently a Senior Residential Support Worker in one of our homes and a Lead Residential Grace Ambassador.
I’ve worked for Compass Children’s homes for over a year now, starting as a Residential Support Worker and then becoming a Senior Residential Support Worker. I have worked in youth group volunteering for several years before joining Compass.
I strive for equality and want to ensure that each child feels as though they belong, it’s important to me that each young person or colleague feels accepted.
So, for me becoming a GRACE ambassador means that I will be able to encourage change and be a voice for others.”
We’d like to welcome Michaela to the group and we are so excited to see the amazing work she will do!
