Teresa Jennings Voted Director of the Year 2019


















Teresa Jennings, our fabulous director, has made such an impact in the four years she’s been with us. She has managed a sustainable and stable growth of 195% within her time as n-compass’ director, with income rising from £2.2m in 2015 to £6.5m 2019, with 160 hardworking staff members. 

That’s just the tip of the iceberg for Teresa’s achievements at n-compass, and her 25-years-and-counting career too, and holding testimony to that is her recent accolade of Charity Director of the Year 2019 at the North West Charity Awards!

Teresa said: “Awards offer a perfect platform to talk about what is needed to support the more vulnerable members of our society in these times of austerity and uncertainty. In my view, we have to create a culture of resilience not reliance, and a common sense approach to preventing issues rather than trying to cure them. I am elated to be recognised alongside many of my peers and hope that together we can continue to make a real difference through the work we all do.”

Teresa has also held numerous non-executive positions and is an advisory committee member for BBC Children In Need. Earlier this year, she received recognition for her contribution to charity in the English Women’s Awards.

As well as Teresa’s recognition, n-compass received two highly-commended awards: Charity of the Year and Volunteer Manager of the Year - a huge achievement for the whole n-compass team!
