This coming year is a particularly important milestone for n-compass as we enter our 20th year of operation. We are a lancashire born success story, beginning as a small charity based above a shop in St Anne’s, to an employer of 155 staff who deliver excellent health and care services across the north West. We are very proud that our reputation as a ‘dynamic’ and ‘can do’ organisation has led to such a vote of confidence by commissioners and other funders alike. this was further enhanced when we achieved 13th position in The Sunday Times Top 100 Not For Profit Organisations to work for in the UK; a testament to all our staff and leadership.
For 2019-2020 we have a determination to sustain our current contracts by continuing to deliver excellent services, and we will also strive to further increase our geographic coverage across the North West. Our paramount commitment is to the region’s vulnerable communities who we will continue to serve and support.
This annual plan has been created with involvement from staff and the Board in order to clearly articulate our ambitions for 2019 and beyond. We look forward to what will no doubt be an exciting year filled with opportunities and, inevitably, some challenges, which I know we will meet head on.
On behalf of the Board I would like to thank our wonderful staff as it is their dedication, passion and commitment that makes n-compass the exceptional charity that it is!
