About Us

The Compass Institute Inc. is an award winning Sunshine Coast based Charity dedicated to providing support for people with intellectual and/or physical disabilities. Compass began in 1992 providing Alternative Education programmes to over seven thousand at-risk youth through local schools. In 2003, Compass followed its dream to open a post-secondary service for young people with intellectual and/or physical disabilities. This was part of a long held dream to dramatically change the philosophy behind this type of service form one of passive recreation to a pathway of lifelong learning, skills based training and vocational opportunities. Our staff and young people are living proof that anything is possible where there is a vision, self-belief and a strong work ethic.
