Being a Trustee

Our trustees are vital in helping Compass to be accountable, efficient, effective and creative. The trustees work closely with the Director and the Compass team to ensure we provide high quality services to meet the current needs of our clients and plan for the future mental health needs of the local community.

Guy Turnbull - Chair of Trustees

I am very proud indeed to be a member of the Compass community.  I first volunteered as a student counsellor in 2015 and chose Compass because of its work, making counselling available to people regardless of income.  Inspired by the positive outcomes that our clients achieve, I wanted to make a greater contribution and volunteered to be a trustee and use my skills to guide and support the development of our counselling services.

Lee Marriott - Treasurer

I am not a counsellor.  My background is in international taxation and as a result of a financial background, I was elected treasurer after I had joined as a trustee.  Much as I am enjoying my role at Compass I would still rather be scuba diving!

Carol Toner

I was delighted to be appointed to the role of Trustee in October 2021, and I am excited to be working alongside Compass Counselling because it is a fantastic charity offering a much needed local service.  I began my counselling studies in 1998 and still apply some of my learning and person-centreed approaches both to everyday life and the workplace.

I currently work for a Northwest based charity that supports adults with a Learning Disability or a Mental Health diagnosis.  During my career I have held several positions in Adult Health and Social Care, Education, and long stay hospitals.   I am passionate about ensuring people have the very best opportunities available.

My interests are technology and how it can enhance life experiences for us all, along with reading the occasional book. My free time is spent swimming or cycling.

Could you be a trustee?

“Taking on the role of Company Secretary at Compass has been rewarding as it has enabled me to use my existing skills and expertise in a new way to support the charity and the team at Compass. It has been good to take on this specific trustee role and I have really appreciated the training that Compass provided to underpin this”

David - Company Secretary
