Brief History

Established in 2009, n-compass northwest is a not-for profit organisation determined to improve the lives of vulnerable people across the region. Originally an advocacy charity, n-compass developed to meet local need and changed its name to reflect that.

Since then, we have grown in line with the needs of the community we serve. Times change and so have we by recognising current social issues such as the isolation and problems faced by the growing army of carers in the region and of course, the rise of self-harming amongst our young people.

n-compass northwest is a dynamic organisation ready for new challenges and we are very proud of our track record made possible by our team of 130 skilled and committed staff. It is their passion and energy which drives the values associated with our unique and dynamic organisation.

The current squeeze on public spending is challenging, but by working together with partners and commissioners, n-compass has continued to fulfil its pledge to provide local, innovative, and responsive services with a turnover of £5.6m in 2016/17.

Originally operating exclusively in Lancashire, n-compass is now expanding its footprint as well as the services offered, which include Advocacy, Carers Support, Counselling and Health & Well-Being services for both adults and young people.
