The end of Compass Carers



Following a recent tendering process, Somerset County Council has confirmed that they have awarded the new contract for Carers Support Services to the Community Council for Somerset (CCS) with effect from 1st October 2017.

CCS is a Somerset-wide Charity, established in 1926 and offering a range of personalised support and infrastructure services for communities across the county, often in isolated rural areas. CCS runs the Somerset Village and Community Agents services and more information about CCS’ work can be found here:

Compass Carers will continue to offer our current service until the end of September but, unfortunately this means that we will no longer exist after the 30th September 2017 and the service will transfer to CCS under the brand of Somerset Carers Agents.

While the details of this transfer are finalised over the next few months, both organisations will liaise closely during the final few weeks before the new service launches to ensure that the needs of Carers and former Carers continue to be met.   Through this implementation phase, limited information will also be available on the CCS website and for further information please contact 

Keeley Rudd, Chief Executive of CCS on 01823 331222. email
