London, UK, May 8th, 2024: On May 3rd 2024, Cap10 Partners reached an agreement to partner with Compass Community (Compass), a leading UK provider of therapeutic fostering, residential and special education for children with high acuity and complex needs.

Fabrice Nottin, Founding Partner of Cap10, said: “Our investment in Compass reflects our commitment to promote businesses which are having a positive impact on society. We stand ready to support local authorities as trusted partners, and we remain committed in our responsibility to ensure that every child receives the support they deserve.”
