Somerset County Council and the NHS have contracted Compass Disability Services; a Somerset based user led organisation to deliver a county wide support service for carers known as Compass Carers.

The overall aim of the service is to support unpaid carers, recognising the value and contribution they make to society offering individual support to enable them to maintain their caring role whilst having a life outside of caring.

The service is promoted by a team of Carer Support Workers who work in conjunction with Carer Champions at GP surgeries, the health and social care sector and a range of other organisations to publicise the help and support available for carers through Compass Carer.
