To enhance the health and well-being of people across the North West of England through providing localised, innovative and responsive services
n-compass’ values are what inspires us to make a difference and enhance life opportunities for adults and young people across local communities. They determine what we do, how we do it and what we are trying to achieve.
Our ’PLEDGE’ to any individual, who has dealings with n-compass, is we will always aspire to the following:-
n-compass aims to be the innovative leader and preferred provider in the provision of advocacy, carers, health and well-being, self-harm and volunteer development initiates and services, making a positive difference and enhancing life opportunities for adults and young people.
n-compass will achieve this through developing and expanding its work as a specialist lead provider and by working collaboratively with key partners. Our commitment to establish effective partnerships is underpinned by acknowledging that no single organisation/sector can tackle deep-rooted social issues and problems alone. By working together we can create many more opportunities and take a co-ordinated approach to reach and support the communities we exist to support and to address the challenge of long-term sustainability for the services we deliver.
History of n-compass
n-compass became an independent charitable organisation in 1999 under the name of Wyre & Fylde Advocacy, providing “issue specific” advocacy. It was established to promote, support and provide advocacy services to anyone disadvantaged through disability, physical/mental illness, age, social exclusion or any other adult who required support dealing with major health and social service providers and needed support to make their needs and wishes known in order to obtain appropriate services and so improve their quality of life.
Since then the identification of unmet need for service users throughout the locality has led to the establishment of other specialised projects. n-compass now provides a range advocacy, carers, health & wellbeing and self-harm services. In order to reflect this, the name of the organisation changed in January 2007 to n-compass.
