About Us

About n-compass

n-compass operates across the North of England to make a positive difference and enhance life opportunities for adults and young people disadvantaged by disability, physical / mental illness, age or social exclusion through providing Advocacy, Carers, Health & Well Being, and Counselling Services.

Our History and Our Values show how we began and where we plan on going. We strive to meet the needs of many people's lives, as well as having a positive effect on their families and the local community. Over the past 20 Years we have supported almost 150,000 people to stay well and regain control of their lives. To celebrate this milestone we held an event at the Harris Museum in Preston. Take a look at the highlights, just click here.

Not only are we celebrating 20 Years but we have been awarded the highest possible accolade of 3-stars from the Best Companies organisation and achieved 13TH position in The Sunday Times Top 100 Not-for-Profit Organisations to Work For, by demonstrating an ‘extraordinary’ level of engagement with staff.  Meet the Team  to find out who the friendly faces are behind the scenes.

Barbara Aird, Chairman

"The n-compass management team and all the staff are dedicated to providing first class services and it is quite humbling when they go beyond the call of duty to make a difference, which they often do"
