The charity provides support for migrant communities.

Ms Forbes (second from right) said: “This is a fantastic initiative that has done wonderful work to bring together communities in Peterborough and offer friendship and support to newcomers to the city. I am particularly impressed with the work COMPAS have done in partnership with local schools to help children from different communities to integrate and understand each other and celebrate their heritage.”
