Somerset Carers Agents

Somerset Carers Support Service:

Important news regarding forthcoming changes.

April 2017


Following a recent competitive 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.

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

Both organisations are fully committed to supporting Carers and former Carers whilst the details of this transfer are finalised over the next few months and 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.

If you have any queries, please contact Keeley Rudd, Chief Executive of CCS on 01823 331222 or email

Please note – this is a temporary webpage with limited information during the implementation phase. A bespoke Somerset Carers Agents website is being developed and will be available around the 1st October 2017.
