The Compass in Cumbria Project is a joint partnership linking together Third Sector and Public Health in a new way. Third Sector organisations provide specialist knowledge and support for a huge variety of conditions. Compass in Cumbria seeks to bring those organisations together, promoting partnership working and assisting in getting the people of Cumbria the best support they need to manage their conditions and live well.
There are so many Third Sector organisation doing such vital work in the county. By signing up to Compass in Cumbria, any non-profit organisation (i.e. Third Sector and statutory services) in the county can have access to the facets of the system absolutely free – The Client Record Information System (CRIS), the Multi-Agency Referral Service (MARS), the diary and networking function Placebook, and this very e-Hub to advertise their events, bulletins, factsheets and jobs.
To register, go to either the Resource Centre or the Organisations page, click the button “Register my Organisation”, and fill in the simple form. One of the regional District Administrators – West (Allerdale and Copeland), North (Carlisle and Eden) or South (South Lakeland, Barrow and Millom) – will get in touch to act as a point of contact and guide you through the application.
To complete the application, a member of the registering organisation able to make decisions on behalf of the organisation must sign and return the Data Sharing Protocol and Data Sharing Agreement that will be sent out to you, which will be then Countersigned by the District Administrator. These agreements ensure the relevance and quality of the material all partners agree to upload to the site.
The whole result of this process is the free access to the Compass in Cumbria e-Hub – a professional resource working to streamline services for the benefit of the people of Cumbria.
Working together works for everyone.
