More information about the scheme
The Village and Community Agent scheme was set up in 2007 to provide a signposting and support service for older people in rural villages in Gloucestershire. It started as a pilot scheme and has continued to grow in success and now covers urban areas such as Stroud, Tewkesbury, Cirencester, Gloucester and Cheltenham as well as rural villages. The Scheme provides a valuable link for people to access community, statutory and other voluntary agencies. Listen to what users of the service have to say ….
‘I think the whole Village Agent Scheme is invaluable and I am very grateful to the GRCC for bringing us this service. It is wonderful - a godsend’.
‘They are always so helpful. Any worries I have, I know that the Village Agent will be able to sort them out’.
‘We have found the service really excellent, it seems to go above and beyond expectations’.
‘Pivotal to finding the services we needed to remain independent’.
I am particularly interested in hearing about community groups running in Wotton-under-Edge and would love to come and meet them. Please do contact me via my mobile or by email if you are involved with such a venture.
