Compass and the New DBS Process

  • Compass

As no doubt you will be aware there has been a number of issues regarding the transfer of data from the old MMS database to the new Compass database but I am pleased to say that HQ are working relentlessly to bring this out to us in a format and functionality that will be of a real benefit to us all. The first tranche of users (the roll out is role based) are now actively using the database and HQ are planning to release then next lot of user invitations in the very near future so please wait to login/register until you receive an invite from HQ. In the meantime please feel free to familiarise yourself with the training system, for more information on that and who your local champion is please either contact or Jackie Daniels (County Compass Champion) your DC. Several processes will change with the new system and more of this will come when you are invited to register.

County Growing .... are you on the Team?

With the imminent recruitment of our County Development Officer the time to grow the County has never been better!
