Over the past 20 years, COMPASS has built a reputation as a resource that has the respect and support of local authorities, universities, government organisations, voluntary & third sector organisations and recruitment agencies. COMPASS is the place to promote your organisation, as well as cost-effectively recruit all year round, whether you exhibit at the COMPASS events or advertise in the Annual Guide we have something for everyone. 


COMPASS, The Annual Guide to Social Work and Social Care is an annual social work and social care publication that has a year long shelf life and reaches an audience of over 30,000 social work professionals. With the largest circulation of any publication within the sector, it is a great way to communicate your message and reach a wider audience base across the whole of the U.K. 


COMPASS enjoy working with their advertisers to make sure they are getting the very best out of publishing in the Annual Guide. They offer a range of different options for advertisement, some with the added space for an article. Editorial contributions from advertisers is a great way to promote and enhance their organisation within the publication. An advert may catch a reader’s eye, but an in-depth article can raise their profile as a positive social work employer or sector stakeholder. 


Throughout the year COMPASS also hold three events in London, Birmingham and Manchester. These events are designed for organisations to recruit and network with like-minded people within the sector. Visitors are able to attend these events for free and, with the inclusion of an extensive conference program as part of each event, gain access to exclusive training which allows them to update their CPD as well as network with organisations and other professionals. COMPASS work closely with every exhibitor to promote their attendance through promotional campaigns to ensure they get the best results.
