RUSU Cares About You


Compass is welfare Drop-In space where students can go for Information, Referral and Advice about any issue they may be experiencing. Compass is staffed by highly trained student volunteers who provide ‘peer to peer’ support- and there is always a qualified Social Worker on site to assist. Compass can refer to onsite support services and also services within the community.
