n-compass operates across Lancashire 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 and Wellbeing and Young Peoples Services.
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.
