The team at The Compass Centre is delighted to unveil a new gathering space for service users in its garden thanks to a donation from BAM Nuttall Ltd.
The space, which previously was unused, now has a patio area complete with picnic benches and a brand-new shed.
We are recruiting for new Trustees to join our team!
This is an exciting opportunity to join the team at The Compass Centre / Shetland Rape Crisis. We provide free and confidential information, support, counselling, and advocacy to any non-abusive person in Shetland, of any gender (age 13+), who has affected by sexual violence at any time in their life. We are an intersectional feminist and trauma-skilled organisation, and the successful candidate will be supported to learn and grow in their own practice and values-base. We are particularly looking to recruit for a Treasurer, so if you have a background in finance or business, please get in touch.
"I've met lots of incredible women I never would have known and learned about the work they do, which makes me feel more hopeful in the face of the endless grim news we all see. I’d encourage anyone interested to get in touch and consider becoming a Trustee – all sorts of skills and experience can make a difference to combatting sexual violence in Shetland."
- Siún Carden, Trustee for over 5 years & previous Chair of the Board.
Following on from #WisToo, The Compass Centre, also known as Shetland Rape Crisis, is curating a digital and print awareness-raising project focused on experiences of sexual harassment and intimate image abuse in Shetland.
Submissions will inspire the creation of a print campaign that will appear on buses across the Isles and a digital campaign that will be released via social media and on The Compass Centre website.
