Compass Children and Family Service aims to improve the quality of life of all children and young people under 18 years old with an acquired brain injury in Dumfries and Galloway, to enable them to reach their full potential, to work positively towards social inclusion and to involve and inform other professionals in that process.  This service is led by Leanne Pumpr.  Leanne joined the Compass team in June 2019 and has several years experience supporting children and young people. 

The Child and Family Outreach Workers provide help and support to families and carers of a child or young person with an acquired brain injury, within the home and school setting. The service includes provision of information about acquired brain injury; help with education and re-training and advice about carers' groups and other agencies.

Social events and outings are organised for families of brain injured children e.g. cinema, theatre and even short breaks away for the child (when funding is available), offering respite for the family.  

This service is generously funded by The Robertson Trust and The R S MacDonald Charitable Trust.

If you would like to receive support or advice from us or are aware of anyone we could help in both the short and longer term, please contact us here.
