Indian head massages and hypnotherapy are among the wellbeing benefits offered to staff at n-compass, a health and social care charity based in the North of England. Chiropody, dental treatment and a consultation with a private registered specialist are also available.

The charity's family-friendly policies include paid leave for those with caring responsibilities. Staff are also given the opportunity to learn Makaton and sign language.

n-compass's 170-strong team delivers more than £6.3m worth of aid, such as the provision of carers and advocacy, wellbeing, counselling and volunteering services across the north of England. It helps people stay well by assisting them to regain control of their lives, providing hope and a sense of purpose.

Its reach extends from Cumbria to Staffordshire, encompassing services in Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire.

It places people at the centre of everything it does, delivering excellence by using people’s strengths to stay well. n-compass has been building a healthy workplace culture for years — one that not only puts its services-users at the heart of everything it does, but also its staff.

n-compass believes its healthy workplace culture enables it to meet challenges, such as Covid, head-on, while staff continue to thrive. It is committed to and has been actively involved in the national Mental Health for First Aid campaign. It has been a central plank of planning and organisational development for many years. The charity's mantra is to continue to grow well.

As a leader my role is to create the right conditions for success. For me having a healthy workplace culture is absolutely at the core of our future success and growth.
